Does anyone know where I can get property boundaries and clear imagery for the North Eastern areas of Africa? Or software that can extract boundaries from google/bing imagery?

Looking earlier on in the thread Victoria posted, it seems ArcGIS doesn’t allow connections to the “postgres" database. That makes sense as that is PostgreSQL’s maintenance database. You should working in another database. In one PostgreSQL cluster you can create as many databases as you want and add PostGIS to them independently if you need it.

Thank you all for the assistance, unfortunately no luck with ArcGIS. But as a result, QGIS has 6 new users. So that is a plus! ☺

Haha lovely!
