Accessing Spatial Data from PostGIS in Other Applications

Visualizing results isn’t always the end goal of a spatial query. Often, someone just needs to write a report or provide a statistic. However, figures often help explain the data in a way that a report can’t, which is why mapping is such a useful tool for communication.

If you want to visualize the results of PostGIS queries, you have a few options. Depending on what software you use, the simplest method may be to export the data from PostGIS to another format, such as a GML file or an ESRI shapefile. Or you may want to view the data directly in a desktop viewer such as OpenEV or put it in a MapServer web map application.
