The Paradise Project

By applying object-oriented and parallel database technologies to the problem of storing and manipulating geographic information we hope to significantly advance the size and complexity of GIS data sets that can be successfully stored, browsed, and queried.

This new version allows the user to query the Flickr Shapefiles dataset using a bounding box and selection of the appropriate place type (Neighbourhood, Locality, Region, Country, Continent). I’ve also changed the base mapping. The previous version of the project used the Microsoft Hybrid base map but I’ve now replaced this with my own Cloudmade style. Using the bounding box it’s possible to browse the Shapefiles available for an area quite easily. However marking out a large area can generate a huge list of Shapefiles particularly in more populated areas.

The Flickr API returns both ESRI format shapefiles and XML / JSON. The monster dump of all Flickr shapes is just XML, however. Thanks GeoPDX!] Republished from MapToPixel. Kelso’s Corner. I prompted a flurry of PostGIS hate (and some love) on Twitter last week, documented via Storify.

I’ve been using PostGIS for around 2 years now both at Stamen and before that at The Washington Post. Let me say upfront that PostGIS is amazing and is definitely in the top 5 best FOSS4G (free and open source software for geo) out there. It is a super powerful spatial data store that is free to download, install, and use (even in commercial projects!). UWCL - Home. CartoTalk.
