[postgis-users] Empty spatial_ref_sys table?

The file you are looking for is spatial_ref_sys.sql.  Its usually
located in your Postgresql install folder in the subfolder contrib

so something like path

If per chance you can't find it, its also located in the postgis source
code tar balls I think which are located on this page.


Hope that helps,

Subject: [postgis-users] Empty spatial_ref_sys table?

I'm new to all this but can already see the value of postgis. My issue
is that after installing postgis on OS X using these installer packages.
Everything seems to be working fine but my spatial_ref_sys table is
empty and from doing a bit of reading online it sounds like that should
be full of values to help with reprojection later.

Maybe someone could send me an sql dump of that table?
