How to do simple geofencing with PostGIS

The wide use of Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) has led to a number of features, including geofencing. In this case, geofencing is the tracking of an object in and out of a geofence. A Geofence is a circle or polygon around a given area on a map. A circle can show areas that can track the entrance [...]

Mapbox’s API to geocode data to get location information

When starting the National Geographic project, the dataset used had missing data. The dataset was missing street, city, state or zipcode to go along with the longitude and latitude for parks. Also, when doing a general search of street, city, state or zipcode, we wanted the capability to get the longitude and latitude of the search term [...]

PostGIS’s Simple Geospatial Features for PostgreSQL

PostGIS is a geospatial database extension of PostgreSQL. This technology can be used to find the geometry, longitude, latitude, distance and other measures. Some of its features, namely geometric types are specific to geospatial databases. These measures can be used for finding the location of an object and objects that are near to a point. Recently [...]

Case Study: Creating a Geospatial Web Service for National Geographic

National Geographic needed a geospatial web service to get data and display on a map. Celerity chose Ade Labs to help build this geospatial web service. The application would involve creating a web service with park location information so that the information could be plotted on a map. Ade Labs was in charge of building the [...]
