Overview

PostGIS library adds extra types (geometry, geography, raster and others) to the PostgreSQL database. It also adds functions and indexes that apply to those types.

It does this by:

  • Building a C library that PostgreSQL can load into a postgres backend.
  • Binding the functions and structures in that library to SQL types and functions.
