Abstract

Spatial Data Handling in PostGIS

Dorothea Andersson

This thesis discusses the concept of spatial data, and focuses on a theoretical example to demonstrate the need for unique ways of modeling and representing such data. PostGIS is used to extend PostgreSQL to solve the presented problem and demonstrate methods for optimizing the solution queries. The behavior of PostGIS is studied and commented on, indicating there is still a long way to go before this kind of data can be handled in an equally straightforward manner as more traditional data.

Sammanfattning

Hantering av spatial data med PostGIS

Dorothea Andersson

Denna uppsats diskuterar konceptet spatial data, och fokuserar på ett teoretisk exempel för att demonstrera behovet av nya sätt att modellera och representera sådan data. PostGIS används för att utvidga PostgreSQL och lösa det uppställda problemet, samt visa metoder för att optimera de ställda SQL-frågorna. PostGIS beteende undersöks och kommenteras, och utifrån experimentella resultat dras slusatsen att det finns mycket kvar att göra innan spatial data kan hanteras med samma lätthet som mer traditionell data.
