I am relatively new in this field. I am designing a database to store the
events extracted from the oceans. This project later demands of publishing
data on web. I am not able to decide which database to use. Mysql with
spatial extension or the postgis one. I would prefer to use windows platform.
Can someone suggest or can provide me with some links that compare the two
databases. Do you think Mysql has a better spatial elements handling
capacity in comparison to postgis.?
please reply soon.
Thanks and Regards
