> >- How the data is being accessed / manipulated
> After some experimenting we did a PHP Mapscript web application with
Postgis as spatial backend. Basic features use intersect (distance=0 a&&b)

> >- Why you chose to use PostGIS for the application
> Open source. Open standards. Glues perfectly with Mapserver. In prospectus
GEOS. Builds over PostgreSQL.

> It is very flexible and seems to be built on solid algorithms (i.e. I get
> trustworthy results). A highly responsive user/support community (I'm
> including mapserver here).

Wish List

A good GIS front end like Mapinfo, or a good conection to MI!!!
