How To



PostGeoOlap is a decision support tool that integrates OLAP (On-Line Analytical Processing) and GIS (Geographical Information System) technologies in a single application. PostGeoOlap is an open source and a general-purpose tool to be used by application developers to easily develop their decision support applications. This tool works on the PostGreSQL DBMS using its spatial extensions (PostGIS) and performs the analytical and geographical functionalities using data warehouses.

The results returned by the spatial DBMS (PostgreSQL + PostGIS) are presented in a spreadsheet frame, and those geographical ones (if any) are passed to a visualization component (JUMP) for displaying the objects in a map.
