Hi Eric

I haven't specifically done this in PostGIS, but have briefly looked into
something similar with a colleague who uses R extensively, and was looking at
cellular automata modelling over a hexagonal grid. He was using such a dataset
in R, & there were a few ways this could be transferred to PostGIS, including
the R:gdal package, or a dump/parse/reformat/import script.
