> Who are you?
>From the top, down: We are the United States Department of Agriculture,
Rocky Mountain Research Station, Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory, Fire
Chemistry Project, Remote Sensing Lab.
> What are you using PostGIS for?
We have a MODIS (satellite) Direct Broadcast receiving station here. It
monitors active fires in near-real time across the Western U.S., Canada,
and Mexico. We use a postgis database to store active fire (thermal
anomaly) detections and burnscar (charred veg) detections, and filter and
combine them into progressing fire perimeters.
Additionally, we have another postgis database as a geospatial datastore
and backend for portraying atmospheric chemistry data.
> Why did you choose PostGIS?
It's fun and affordable! Linux-friendly, highly configurable and flexible,
many programming options available.
> What makes you happy about your PostGIS installation?
It works every day as expected.
> What makes you unhappy about your PostGIS installation?
Hm. Not a whole lot, to be honest.

Those who want to remain in confidence, but still want to make their
feelings known, please respond to me directly.
I am going to be writing up a handful of PostGIS users into full
white-papers for the web site and my own conference talks, so please, if
you think you have a compelling PostGIS story, start by giving us a
summary here on the list!
I love hearing these stories!
