Cloud-based application platform Heroku is adding PostGIS 2.0 support to its platform-as-a-service, the company said in a blog post. PostGIS support will allow users to analyze and manipulate geospatial data as an extension of their Postgres database. "Whether you are looking to compute walkability scores to nearby schools, target ads based on GPS locations, or search for apartments by specific neighborhoods, PostGIS can help make you build richer functionality into your application more easily," Heroku's Craig Kerstiens wrote in the post.
