Workshop on Cartographic Generalization with PostgreSQL and PostGIS

PostgreSQL, with its spatial extension PostGIS, forms the basis for many web maps and is ideally suited for processing large data sets. Generalization is an essential part of map production and a core problem of cartography. PostGIS is particularly suitable for this application due to its large number of functions and its performance. The possibilities of the generalization through typification and more complex selection procedures are to be presented based on examples. The participants get a demonstration of how to generalize with PostGIS as an introduction. Afterward, they have to possibility to adjust provided snippets and discuss solutions for generalization problems.
