The recent selection of Postgres as the "Database of the Year" for the third time in four years is by no means an overnight success story, but is well deserved recognition for a database decades in the making. As organizations look for the relational database of the future, Postgres is ready and waiting. We are proud to be among the leading contributors and supporters of this important movement.
Today we are going to finish up by showing how to use that stored model to make predictions on new data. By the way, I did all of the Postgres work for the entire blog series in Crunchy Bridge. I wanted to focus on the data and code and not on how to run PostgreSQL.
Crunchy Data is pleased to announce the publication of the Crunchy Data PostgreSQL Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) by the United States Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). PostgreSQL was the first open source database to provide a published STIG, and Crunchy Data is proud to update and improve the STIG as PostgreSQL continues to advance and evolve.
This new guide is the result of ongoing collaboration with DISA and provides security guidance for PostgreSQL 9.6 through 12
Greetings friends! We have finally come to the point in the Postgres for Data Science series where we are not doing data preparation. Today we are going to do modeling and prediction of fire occurrence given weather parameters… IN OUR DATABASE!
There are a lot of ways to load data into a PostgreSQL/PostGIS database and it's no different with spatial data. If you're new to PostGIS, you've come to the right place. In this blog post, I'll outline a few free, open source tools you can use for your spatial data import needs.
Today I'm changing the memory speed on my main test system, going from 2133MHz to 3200MHz, and measuring how that impacts PostgreSQL SELECT results. I'm seeing a 3% gain on this server, but as always with databases that's only on a narrow set of in-memory use cases.
In this series so far we've talked about how to get our Django application to save uploaded images as bytea in Postgres. We've also walked through an example of a PL/Python function that processes the binary data to apply a blur filter to the uploaded image. Now, we'll show how to retrieve the blurred image from Django.
I recently wrote about building a Django app that stores uploaded image files in bytea format in PostgreSQL. For the second post in this series, we're now going to take a look at applying a blur filter to the uploaded image using PL/Python.
The PostGIS raster has a steep learning curve, but it opens up some unique possibilities for data analysis and accessing non-standard data from within PostgreSQL. Here's an example that shows how to access raster data from PostGIS running on Crunchy Bridge.
In our last blog post on using Postgres for statistics, I covered some of the decisions on how to handle calculated columns in PostgreSQL. I chose to go with adding extra columns to the same table and inserting the calculated values into these new columns. Today’s post is going to cover how to implement this solution using Pl/pgSQL.
For those of you who have a bad taste in your mouth from earlier run-ins with regexs, this will be more use case focused and I will do my best to explain the search patterns I used.
Crunchy Data's second annual PostGIS Day took place a couple weeks ago on November 19th, and as a first-time attendee I was blown away by the knowledge-sharing and sense of community that I saw, even as I was tuning in remotely from my computer at home.
Today we are going to examine methods for calculating z-scores for our data in the database. We want to do this transformation because, when we carry out logistic regression we want to be able to compare the effects of the different factors on fire probability.
