Using SQL, you can query the raster_columns view for getting the most significant raster metadata (spatial reference, band number, scale, block size, and so on). With gdalinfo, you can access the same information, using a connection string with the following syntax: gdalinfo PG":host=localhost port=5432 dbname=postgis_cookbook user=me password=mypassword schema='chp01' table='tmax01' mode=2" The mode parameter is not influential if you loaded the whole raster as a single block (for example, if you did not specify the -t option).

The PostGIS command, shp2pgsql, allows the user to import a shapefile in the PostGIS database. Basically, it generates a PostgreSQL dump file that can be used to load data by running it from within PostgreSQL. The SQL file will be generally composed of the following sections: ff The CREATE TABLE section (if the -a option is not selected, in which case, the table should already exist in the database) ff The INSERT INTO section (one INSERT statement for each feature to be imported from the shapefile) ff The CREATE INDEX section (if the -I option is selected) Unlike ogr2ogr, there is no way to make spatial or attribute selections (-spat, -where ogr2ogr options) for features in the shapefile to import.

Check if the shapefile was correctly imported in PostGIS, querying the spatial table in the database or displaying it in a Desktop GIS. 4. 4 ... (100 rows) 5.
