Rails and PostGIS

Basic introduction to geospatial querying in Rails with PostGIS

Please read these two blog posts by Daniel Azuma for background (they are from 2011 but are still quite relevant):

Geo-Rails Part 1: A Call to Revolution

Geo-Rails Part 2: Setting Up a Geospatial Rails App

Then install PostGIS and make sure it works well with Rails by following the Install documentation for active-record-postgis-adapter.

Please submit questions or problems installing PostGIS to the Starmonkeys Google Group.

I will post a google hangout link in the whiteboard at the beginning of class.
