I'm in a forest management and forest products company.
> What are you using PostGIS for?
I use PostGIS instead of other programs that I used to use for GIS data
processing and summarizing.
My goal this year is to do all Geoprocessing and tabular
summaries/analysis in PostGIS.
It is increasingly becoming part of db applications I write which need
some refer to location.
> Why did you choose PostGIS?
-Made in Canada (n'est pas?)
-Marriage of spatial and tabular in one powerful, enterprise system.
-Built on the great power of Postgresql
-Open Source and a great support network (i.e. this mailing list)
-It's just so much fun!
> What makes you happy about your PostGIS installation?
-Access to CVS for latest greatest improvements
-Powerful function access through GEOS libraries
-Easy to administer
> What makes you unhappy about your PostGIS installation?
-Lack of native windows support for Postgresql
-Lack of packaged distributions (though I see this is improving in Linux
-Tie-ins to visualization and mapping programs
-Client-side editing tools
