PostGIS CookBook Review

The good folks at PacktPub.com handed me a copy of “PostGIS CookBook” a comprehensive guide for GIS developers.

While i must say the book has some great recipes, LIDAR data processing is a good read, a small introduction to postgis and related technology would have been a good idea for newbie developers.

Nevertheless, the book offers great insights to PostGIS version 2.x, recipes like performing Routing on a OSM map, replication for PostGIS provide for great fodder to GIS developers.

If you are into location based services, travel, geo enabled services then this is not a recommended book but a MUST buy.
