    24 This operation is very straightforward for any casual PostGIS user. There are many ways to import a shapefile into PostGIS. You can use the classical loader provided with PostGIS (shp2pgsql.exe) or the GUI one integrated into pgAdmin III. You can also use GDAL/OGR, OpenJUMP or QGIS. The classical loader and GDAL/ORG are command line program and the PostGIS GUI one, OpenJUMP and QGIS are graphical user interfaces (GUI). PostGIS WKT Raster does not have a GUI loader yet. It comes with a Python command line loader (gdal2wktraster.py, thanks to Mateusz Loskot) very similar to PostGIS shp2pgsql.exe. We will import both datasets using those loaders in order to appreciate the similitudes.
