I'm pretty new to PostGIS and GIS in general. I am experiencing what I
perceive to be troubles getting my shapefiles into my database. Say I
have a shapefile called northamerica.shp and my database is call
giswxtest, I run shp2pgsql like so:
shp2pgsql -c northamerica.shp northamerica giswxtest
Lots of stuff scrolls past the screen that look like Insert statements.
After this finishes I load up the database in psql and expect to see a
table called 'northamerica'. I do not see this table. In fact I do not
see any new tables. Can anyone give me a hand here?
