#maptimeDavis: Introduction to PostGIS with Crunchy Data
November 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Learn about PostGIS, a powerful, open-source extension to the PostgreSQL database, by exploring the tutorials available from CrunchyData under the guidance of an experienced instructor.
Learn the basics of a spatial database, how to query data, and understand possible applications of this tool.
There are no prerequisites for this course, but familiarity with spatial data, spatial databases, and SQL is a plus. DataLab’s workshops, “Intro to SQL for Querying Databases” https://github.com/MicheleTobias/Workshop-SQL and “Spatial SQL” https://github.com/MicheleTobias/Spatial_SQL are good preparation for this workshop if you have no previous background.
CrunchyData tutorials run through your web browser, no additional software is required.
