Managing Map Data in MySQL or PostgreSQL
Understanding how OGC is used in MySQL and PostGIS is used in PostgreSQL to use MySQL or PostgreSQL as Map server.
MySQL implements Geo spatial extensions using opengis and PostgreSQL uses PostGIS. Both these extensions enhances traditional databases to perform geo spatial queries. Queries like existence of a Point in a polygon or distance between points/polygons can directly be executed in the DB.
