Full Description

Natural Earth PostGIS database

:warning: This repository is no longer maintained by Lukas Martinelli.

A PostGIS Docker container populated with Natural Earth data.
You can use this to quickly spin up a PostGIS database
containing the full Natural Earth data set to get
started with analysis.


Make sure you have installed Docker for your platform.


Now you need to start the prepared Docker container and wait until it is ready.

docker run -p 5432:5432 lukasmartinelli/natural-earth-postgis

You can also use the Kitematic GUI and search for natural earth postgis to spin up the container.


You can now use psql or any other PostgreSQL client to connect to the PostGIS database naturalearth.
Use the user naturalearth with the password naturalearth.

psql --host localhost --user naturalearth --db naturalearth --password
Setting Value
Database naturalearth
User naturalearth
Password naturalearth

Run alongside existing PostgreSQL

If you run the container on your local host and there is already PostgreSQL database running you can
map the container to a different port.

docker run -p 5433:5432 lukasmartinelli/natural-earth-postgis
psql --host localhost --port 5433 --user naturalearth --db naturalearth --password

Postgis Editor

To get started analyzing the data I recommend to use postgis-studio.
