5(6) Ways to get data into Postgres/PostGIS

Lots of people ask me how to get data into Postgis.  This video is a quick 8 minute demonstration of 6 ways to get data into Postgres – 4 free (PGAdmin III, shp2pgsql, ogr2ogr, QGIS Database Manager) and two commercial.   (Manifold 8, Manifold 9).

Now, in this case I’m only working with a shapefile and Postgres.  I will do another post that works with other data (geodatabases, Autocad, etc.), and other databases (SQL Server, Oracle, etc.).  I hope you enjoy it.  Also, if you have other ways you like getting data into Postgis, leave a comment below….
