If you are running PostGIS 2.0+, you can use the ST_RemoveRepeatedPoints function, so no need to go thru all that trouble of extracting and reconstituting http://postgis.net/docs/manual-2.1/ST_RemoveRepeatedPoints.html UPDATE yourpolygontable SET geom = ST_RemoveRepeatedPoints(geom);
ST_ClosestPoint will find the closest point on a linestring. For example, locating a point on a road that is closest to a point-of-interest off to one side: SELECT ST_AsText(ST_ClosestPoint(road, poi)) FROM (SELECT 'LINESTRING (10 10, 20 20)'::geometry AS road, 'POINT (14 10)'::geometry AS poi ) AS f; st_astext -------------- POINT(12 12) (1 row) ...
I went through this last year, and using the OpenLayers basemaps for print-ready exports does not seem to work. I think its the basemap tiles that are moving, and not your points... I would recommend, and you will love the result in terms of quality as much as what you learned, to follow the steps @underdark has put together here: A guide to ...
For this you need at least version 1.3.2 of Shapely, which was released 2014-05-13. The lines of code you are looking at were added in a commit "Allow LineStrings to take arrays of Points".
This is probably answered in Empty geometries in GEOMETRYCOLLECTION which refers also to http://trac.osgeo.org/postgis/wiki/DevWikiEmptyGeometry. A practical use case for many GIS programs like QGIS which can only hold one sort of geometries on a single layer is to make it possible to import attributes into a new layer and initialize it correctly so it can ...
Providing you can differentiate between group of points to form a polyline (distance tolerance?), the following works: Find point for which total of distances to other points in the group is maximum. This makes a first point of target polyline (first point in the array) Iterate through the rest of the points to find nearest, add to the array, etc. Convert ...
