I'm developing a multi-functional XML database enviroment using PostgreSQL.

the enviroment can store GML, and provides some access method.

XpSQL decompose XML documents into fragments and 
uses PostgreSQL to store them in a set of relations.

It provides a variety of means to access XML Documents;
(a) DOM functions to build and traverse XML Documents
(b) XPath engine to extract infomation from documents
(c) update functions to modify documents

I am planning to support G-XML in the future.
ex). /map/geo[near(point,'1.1.5')]

About GIS, since I still don't know well, 
I have to investigate much more about Postgis(opengis) and G-XML(GML).
I'm learning(testing) postgis now.

BTW.. although I am not an expert about GIS field, 
is there already any useful project which has geographic function 
and data management method supporting XML?
