[postgis-users] Php interface for loading shp file into postgis

Hi to all!

I am trying to found a good way to approach this issue:

i need to build a php interface that will do those tasks:
1) Load a shp file selected by the user;
2) Check if the file has got a prj file associated with it and if not
let the user insert the PROJ code for the current file;
3) Use proj to convert the file to the needed projection;
4) Store the file inside POSTGIS

The main thing i am thinking about, is when do the projection swap:
is it better to do BEFORE importing the data in POSTGIS or do just after the data has
been inserted inside Postgis?

Any feedback would be nice

Thank you very much
