I'm an entrepreneurial software engineer, advisor and consultant. I work with companies to help turn ideas into successful products and services, and I have a proven track record of leading distributed development teams.

I've built web and mobile applications that touch millions of consumers and tens of thousands of government employees in the US and abroad every day, ranging from 3D mapping and tracking platforms, to critical government systems that monitor radiation levels, to a revolutionary project that has made solar energy more affordable and accessible.

My work has helped obtain over $5 million in angel investments, $250 million in venture capital and private funding, and numerous US government contracts and grant awards amounting to at least $2.5 million. And I'm just getting warmed up.

We actually do have a spatial index on wkb_geometry. Any other thoughts?

The query is still nearly 4 seconds long...what can I do to improve that?

comment Converting LinestringM to Polygon PostGIS
You were correct, but the implementation we were using here was unnecessarily long... Instead of the above code, we got away with just using POLYGON, eliminating the and ST_MakePolygon, ST_GeomFromText, LINESTRINGM
