PostGIS is an open source extension to Postgres that spatially enables your database server, and follows the OGC Simple Features for SQL specification.



PostGIS is an open source extension for the PostgreSQL object relational database providing spatial objects and functions, and enabling storage and query of information about location and mapping. Developed and maintained as an independent open source project, PostGIS is recognized as one of the most powerful solutions for workloads that require geo-spatial characteristics. Once connected through EDB Postgres, PostGIS assumes the native features of the database deployment, such as scalability and ACID compliance.
