Create a New Table in PostGIS with QGIS DBManager | Digitizing in Live Database

With this step-by-step video lesson on creating a new table in PostGIS with QGIS DBManager and digitizing it on a live database, your knowledge of spatial data administration will go to the next level!

Use the power inside QGIS and PostGIS:
QGIS is a famous open-source GIS to create, edit, and analyze geospatial information. PostGIS is a robust spatial database extension for the PostgreSQL database. You will be able to unleash the power of spatial data management by using both these tools simultaneously.

With QGIS DBManager, add a new table in PostGIS: Using this tutorial you will learn how to:

  • With QGIS DBManager, connect to your PostGIS database.
  • In PostGIS, add a new table with spatial columns.
  • Define geometry type and Spatial Reference System(SRS).
  • Understand the importance of constraints and spatial indexing.

Encoding in a Real-Time Database:
With this new table created, see how to digitize geographic data with QGIS and import it instantly into your live database.

  • Adding new and editing existing features
  • Utilizing digitizing tools like snapping
  • Identifying the benefits of digitization in a live database.

Best Practices and Tips:
Throughout the workshop, we will become acquainted with several best practices and tips in working with QGIS and PostGIS, including:

  • Schema design and data modeling,
  • Methods to import and export spatial data,
  • Methods for performance optimization.

After viewing this video lecture, a student will be able to learn how to comfortably make the disposal of spatial data digitization into the working database and create a new table inside PostGIS with the help of QGIS DBManager. This course is fit for anybody looking to take their projects to the next level and hone spatial data management skills, no matter the experience level—GIS experts, data analysts, or developers.

Why wait, then? Take a plunge, and start learning QGIS and PostGIS now!
