comment How fast should I expect PostGIS to geocode well-formatted addresses?
What does the machine do when you run the queries? Does it block on IO or is the bottleneck somewhere else?

comment Error while using osmosis
Do you get your data from Overpass API? If so, see other answer. If not, set them to something like 1970-01-01T00:00with a text editor (for testing) or programattically (using e.g. python minidom)

comment How can I see specific location on java desktop application?
Have you googled at all? Googling for "google maps api java" finds developers.google.com/api-client-library/java/apis/mapsengine/… , which says "yes, there is".

Note that you may only use the free Google Maps API if your application is publicly accessible without charge: developers.google.com/maps/terms?hl=de#section_9_1 .

comment Cannot edit polygons in Qgis
My QGIS can open and edit the file allright, but when saving the edits weird things happen: the new polygon jumps to a different position. ArcGIS cannot open the shape file even if I rename the .dbf to "my_polygon.dbf", complains about different number of shapes in shapefile and attribute table. I suggest something is broken with the shape file. Just for the record: what projection is the shapefile in? I assumed 4326 (WGS84).

comment Getting coordinates from random directions
I still don't get what you want to extract from those rows. Could you provide an example on what data values you want to extract from the string "CR 70 & CR 53, N1, W 5/10, S 5/10 INTO "?

comment How can I remove cloud cover on landsat8 imagery?
What do you mean by "remove" - show the true terrain under the cloud (thats impossible, as far as i know), or mask the cloud, so that your analysis will not try to analyze the cloud (thats what @Luke suggests using the QA band)

comment QGIS how to 'compare' points (latitude/longitude) w/address data (zip) to a zipcode boundaries shapefile
The "spatial join" solution sounds more GIS-y, whereas my proposal is more database-y :-)

Please keep in mind the possible SQL injection you open yourself to if $route is somehow influencable by an end user.

comment How to export SpatialPolygons as Shapefile
What software do you use? From the syntax and the term "Data frame" I guess you use "R". Please edit your question to include the software.

comment Tutorials to handle spatial data in R?
I find this very hard to grasp. It only has 4 slides that mainly say "look at these packages", and non-commented code that will give you examples, but leave all the research on what exactly this does to the reader.

comment Can't find the proper settings to import Europe map using osm2pgsql?
To address your problem of dynamic IPs and the ssh connection not staying open you can use the "screen" command to create a virtual screen. See "man screen" command, or ss64.com/bash/screen.html
