postgis

The postgis image provides a Docker container running Postgres 9.4 with
PostGIS 2.1 installed. This image is
based on the mdillon / postgis
image.

The PostGIS extension can be installed into your database in
the standard way via psql:

CREATE EXTENSION postgis;
CREATE EXTENSION postgis_topology;

Usage

In order to run a basic container capable of serving a PostGIS-enabled database,
start a container as follows:

docker run --name some-postgis -e MAX_CONNECTIONS=400 -d near/postgis

For more detailed instructions about how to start and control your Postgres
container, see the documentation for the postgres image
here.

Once you have started a database container, you can then connect to the
database as follows:

docker run -it --link some-postgis:postgres --rm postgres \
    sh -c 'exec psql -h "$POSTGRES_PORT_5432_TCP_ADDR" -p "$POSTGRES_PORT_5432_TCP_PORT" -U postgres'

Using the resulting psql shell, you can create a PostGIS-enabled database by
using the CREATE EXTENSION mechanism:

CREATE EXTENSION postgis;
CREATE EXTENSION postgis_topology;

See the PostGIS documentation
for more details on your options for creating and using a spatially-enabled database.
