I loaded the *.osm file to postgis with osm2pgsql. The data are stored in lat/long, so the same time I expect them to should be available in geography view, but they are not (only present in geometry column). Is there any way the osm tables to be visible in geography view? As far as I know I cannot define other unit in function like ST_buffer than the original table is stored in? So for example if the data are in lat/long the function St_buffer will return the distance in degree. Instead of that I would like to be able to execute queries with meter parameters even if the data are stored in lat/long. To do that actually I need the osm tables to be visible in the geography column, Am I right? If so ... how to?
Thanks a lot for an answer, Gregory
