Thanks to three (3) brave sponsors stepping up steadly
we now have the capability to store rasters in a postgis
enabled database.

The rasters can be both in the database or just external
and only referenced.

Once imported/registered they can be selected using 
well known operators already in use for GEOMETRY types.

The only downside is that you can't do much with them yet :)
There's still a lot to be sponsored, but you don't necessarely
need everything to make use of it. Simple register/retrive
(path-based) would only take a single funding slot to complete.

If you want to take a look at the current code (maybe to build
and run the automated testcases):

 svn co http://svn.refractions.net/postgis/spike/wktraster

If you're interested in sponsoring further steps, see:


And/or mail me or Pierre directly.
