Hello,

 

I created and some clients are using a PostgreSQL database with a web
page connect. This is for holding environmental analytical data,
locations of features, etc. I have added PostGIS but am as yet only
using it minimally. I want to be able to write spatial queries on my
data and later have the client do it via a web interface. The database
is pretty complicated, based on an EQUiS ERD, BUT is currently a
'holding place' as I do most of my queries in the more familiar to me MS
Access front end with ODBC connect

 

However, I would like to learn more about using this data and queries,
SQL, etc, etc DIRECTLY in PostgreSQL - views, learns more about
constraints, etc, etc - and make the web page more useful, etc - and in
my professional situation I need to be self taught about this (and PHP,
HTML, Java, OpenLayers, MapServer, etc, etc...   :-)    )

 

May be this is not the place - but I was seeking impressions on "The
PostgreSQL Reference Manual", 2007 published - Volumes 1, 2 & 3? Worth
dropping $100 of my own money on? Is there a better book or series of
books? Something free online? 'Hands on' is best suited to how I learn,
as I have real data...

 

Thanks in advance!
