Thanks for the input.

My understanding of the parallel capabilities of PostgreSQL is somewhat
limited, but I believe the workers are done at the query level, without
partitioning. This likely result in different query performances compared
to a dataset that is partitioned. Also, the partitions scheme used on
spatial dataset can have a great effect on the performance of the spatial
query that you run. It is something I'm very interested in and I didn't
know if anyone in this group was working in this area.
