Heroku Postgres - GIS Support Now Available
April 30, 2013 by Craig Kerstiens
Today we're announcing geospatial support for Heroku Postgres with PostGIS 2.0.
Heroku Postgres is increasingly enabling rich use cases – adding services from key/value datatype in hstore, querying across postgres databases with dblink, and now adding rich geospatial functionality. Adding PostGIS within your Postgres database reduces the number of services you need to add to your stack, reducing complexity and allowing you to build in location-based functionality into apps faster.
