ISCTE: public portuguese university

Lisbon streets and zip codes as a source for geo-coding of addresses.
Locations of entities related to the entertainment domain, as addresses,
geodetic and cartographic locations.

> - How the data is being accessed / manipulated

JDBC, plpgsql functions and triggers.

> - Why you chose to use PostGIS for the application
First, because I use a tool that generates SQL, which made the development
easier. Second, because it is free software and most GIS software is very
expensive, even for universities
