In this case each valid elevation point would define a vertex of a
triangle, wouldn't it ? After gathering all input geoms, and thus
vertexes the triangulation will need to be computed, connecting 
them. But is this worth the cost of doing it ?

problems with postgis.sql

Hello list,

while trying to load postgis.sql
I get the following

Dear Fabio ,

I am not a frequent user of PostGIS.

But this error may be due to the permmision problem i.e make sure this
is owned by PostgreSQL superuser.

 don't windoze paths use \'s not /'s ? Just a thought

This error message doesn't depend on \ or /.

On Windows this message - about 'libpostgis.dll' - is always with an '/'

geomunion question, unexpected behavior


I think the two queries below are both computing the union of the exact 
set of polygons; yet they are producing different results.

In the first case, I create the union of all at once.
This gives me a TopologyException.

In the second case, I group the polygons into smaller subsets, and create 
a geomunion of each - and then cerate a geomunion of the resulting 
subsets.  This works fine and gave me the expected results.

The polygons being unioned ( unionized? :-) ) are all the results of
the buffer() function being applied to MultiPoint objects; so I think
they're well-formed polygons.

Am I correct in guessing that this behavior is incorrect?
Any hints how to debug?

I could dump&send the data, but couldn't get it to fail with less than 720 
polygons yet.

     Thanks in advance
     Ron

      select geomunion(the_geom) from user_area_features;

RE: geomunion question, unexpected behavior


I had a lot of these types of problems previously and I upgraded to
0.9.0 and GEOS 2.0 to correct the problem. I did narrow my problem down
to GEOS having problems with Geometries that were the same. You may try
selecting distinct geometries to pass to geomunion.

You may want to make sure all your geometries are valid. Do a select
isvalid(the_geom)

Dear all ,

Can GIS be programmed in 
Clippers , Foxpro  I mean can they have the same functionality as we
have in PostGIS

Just a query.

Re: library loading error

When I rebooted this morning, downloaded FC3 kernel source to help with 
compiling madwifi, I now find that postgresql is _again_ no longer 
recognizing libgeos?!

Is there something more permanent I need to do than doing ldconfig 
/usr/lib as root?
