1 Comment
In this section, I am showing the 3 basic steps to connect PostGIS database with a widely used open source desktop based gis, QGIS. 

Step1: Install PostGIS with Spatial database support extension
i.                    If PostgreSQL is already installed è Launch ‘Application stack builder’ from startup menu in windows 7.
ii.                  Select the appropriate instance of PGSQL from dropdown list and Click NEXT.
iii.                Expand ‘Categories’è Expand ‘Spatial Extensions’ è Select appropriate PostGIS version(1.5)  for the already installed PGSQL version(8.4).
iv.                    Follow the instructions to install the PostGIS extension.
