This may seem like a very simple question...it is...but I can't find
documentation on it to help. I've seen some posts about lat/long but
none that give simple solutions on how to insert lat/long in tables.
I'm a new user to postgis...I've been using mysql for a while but
needed the spatial functions so just recently downloaded postgresql/
How do I create a simple table with several linestrings that have
coordinates in latitude/longitude?
Eventually, I'd like to create polygons with coordinates in lat/long
and see if they intersect various linestrings, but I'm trying to start
Here's what I've done so far...
postgis=# \d routes_geom;
Column | Type | Modifiers
id | integer |
name | character varying(25) |
geom | geometry |
"enforce_dims_geom" CHECK (ndims(geom) = 2)
"enforce_geotype_geom" CHECK (geometrytype(geom) =
'LINESTRING'::text OR geom IS NULL)
"enforce_srid_geom" CHECK (srid(geom) = 4326)
postgis=# insert into routes_geom values(1, 'J084',
GeomFromText('LINESTRING(38.20 -121.00, 38.20, -118.00)', 4326));
I receive this error:
ERROR: parse error - invalid geometry
CONTEXT: SQL function "geomfromtext" statement 1
Do you have a good way to input lat/lon and do spatial relationships
using lat/long coords?
Thanks for any help,
