They came out with a very innovative MapAlgebra function based on a user defined PL/pgSQL function. This code should be committed soon with another version involving neighbour pixels. On another side, students are already showing interest for our <A href=http://trac.osgeo.org/postgis/wiki/WKTRasterGSoC/>Google Summer of Code Ideas</A> and Bborie Park, an experienced programmer from the <A href=http://cvec.ucdavis.edu/>Center for Vectorborne Diseases</A> at the University of California will join the team. He will work on a series of SQL function converting PostGIS rasters to the different formats supported by GDAL and on resampling. Welcome Bbories!<BR><BR>

Look for "wktraster" in the <A href=http://pyqgis.org/repo/contributed>QGIS plugin page</A> and <A href=http://mapeandoobrasil.blogspot.com/2010/12/postgis-raster-plugin-para-qgis.html>Mauricio's article</A> (if you can decrypt portuguese!). Samething on the side of <A href=http://www.gvsig.org/web/>gvSIG</A>, the popular spanish open source GIS! Nacho Brodin has developed a plugin to display raster stored in PostGIS. See <A href=http://www.osor.eu/projects/gvsig-postgisra>the page of the project</A>. On our side, we are working fixing bugs and implementing ST_MapAlgebra. See you at the <A href=http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Montreal_Code_Sprint_2011>Code Sprint 2011</A> in Montréal (march 15-18)!<BR><BR>
