Storing Encompass Blob Format in PostGIS

Reported by: CochiseGIS Owned by: pramsey
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS 2.1.2
Component: postgis Version: 2.1.x
Keywords: Cc:


We use a GIS software called Encompass published by Geodesy and SQL Server as a relational database but I am considering migrating to PostGIS. My question is can I store the Encompass geometry (documentation attached) in PostGIS?

This question is probably best asked on our mailing list - might be more of a dev question though but most POstGIS devs are subscribed to both users and dev.

Please repost to our dev mailing list:

wouldn't hurt to post to users since some people may have some experience with this and its a larger list.

You can store any blob you like in PgSQL, it isn't a PostGIS question/issue.

If you want to use that software with PgSQL, talk to the vendor, it's not a question we can answer/do anything about.

I assumed he was asking is there a clean way to convert geodesy geometry format to PostGIS geometry format rather than sticking with the blob. But I think your interpretation might be more right - how can I use Geodesy with PostgreSQL (rather than SQL Server). Anyway either way the question doesn't belong in our bug/enhancement tracker :)
