This full-day workshop will provide you with an introduction to SQL and relational database management systems (RDBMS) with a special focus on using databases to maintain, query, and modify spatial data. Using the open-source DBMS PostgreSQL and its spatial extension PostGIS, we will explore using SQL to perform tasks you may have previously performed using a desktop GIS. ETL processes, data analytics, and modeling can all be extended and enhanced through the use of SQL in a spatially-enabled database.
