DESCRIPTION

v.build.pg builds PostGIS topology for feature tables linked via v.external.

NOTES

Note that PostGIS Topology extension is currently under development. v.build.pg requires PostGIS 2.0.0+.

Existing PostGIS topology schema can be overwrite by --overwrite flag.

v.build.pg calls PostGIS functions:

  1. CreateTopology() to create topology schema in the database,
  2. AddTopoGeometryColumn() to add a topogeometry column to an existing feature table, and
  3. toTopoGeom() to create a new topo geometry from the simple feature geometry.

EXAMPLES

Workflow example

Export vector map into PostGIS:
v.out.ogr input=bridges output=PG:dbname=pgis_nc format=PostgreSQL
Create a new vector map as a link to PostGIS table:
v.external input=PG:dbname=pgis_nc layer=bridges
Check metadata:
v.info map=bridges

...

 | Map format:      PostGIS (PostgreSQL)                                      |
 | DB table:        public.bridges                                            |
 | DB name:         pgis_nc                                                   |
 | Geometry column: wkb_geometry                                              |
 | Feature type:    point                                                     |
 |----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
...
Build PostGIS topology for the link:
v.build.pg map=bridges

...
Topology topo_bridges (6), SRID 900914, precision 1
10938 nodes, 0 edges, 0 faces, 10938 topogeoms in 1 layers
Layer 1, type Puntal (1), 10938 topogeoms
 Deploy: public.bridges.topo
...

Dry run

For testing issues use -p flag.
v.build.pg map=bridges

Creating new topology schema...

SELECT topology.createtopology('topo_bridges', \
find_srid('public', 'bridges', 'wkb_geometry'), 1)

Adding new topology column...

SELECT topology.AddTopoGeometryColumn('topo_bridges', \
'public', 'bridges', 'topo', 'point')

Building PostGIS topology...

UPDATE bridges SET topo = topology.toTopoGeom(wkb_geometry, \
'topo_bridges', 1, 1)


SELECT topology.TopologySummary('topo_bridges')
