Re-writing The PostGIS Section With The New GUI Loader

The other thing I really enjoyed while re-tooling my geo-stack workshop was re-writing the PostGIS section to use the new GUI loader instead of the command-line tools.

shp2pgsql-gui.exe

The GUI was actually one of the first projects I worked on after coming to OpenGeo, and was a part of the 1.4 release. But it didn’t build in Windows, so nobody used it! For 1.5 I got myself a Windows build environment and made it work, so here it is! Another couple pages of boilerplate removed from the workshop.

Update: Soon to be available as “gooey apple” in the next release of the Suite.
