comment Growth of a PostGIS database for Social Media - Move to Cassandra?
@Jay Cummins, I agree that the question isn't about query design and indexing. But to buy more ram before tuning the query seems like starting in the wrong end. That is more the microsoft/esri way of doing things :-)

@mikedotonline ok, but do you have a spatial index that is functional?

comment Growth of a PostGIS database for Social Media - Move to Cassandra?
BTW, you say that you do the selection spatially, but you are also talking about many indexed columns. Why do you have many indexed columns if you don't use them for the selection?

comment Growth of a PostGIS database for Social Media - Move to Cassandra?
Ok, but still. If you have a working spatial index on the geometries I cannot understand that it should take that long time. 350 mill records is not that much.

Are you sure it is the selection that is slow and not just the output of all the data. I mean an index search on a integer field like postal codes on 350 mill rows shouldn't be that slow I think.

comment Is it best to use multipolygon or polygon features for large intersect operations?
ST_Split is not the right function here. It will just split the polygon. Use ST_Intersection to get the interesecting part.

How is your data stored. If it is in a database like postgis this is a quite simple task with sql.

comment Function for Selecting Points in a Polygon
@brichins no the postgresql operators will not work on postgis type but as you say PostGIS has it's own that in many cases mean the same. But not alwayas. The last operator in your link also change meaning between PostGIS 1.4 and 1.5 if I recall right to mean only bbox comparasion.

comment Function for Selecting Points in a Polygon
@brichins, No PostGIS types has nothing to do with the PosgreSQL types. I don't even think there is some simåle cast between them. You have to use the PostGIS types to use the PostGIS functions.

comment PostGis geometry name lookup failed for table
A column of type polygon that contains points? I do not understand from what you are trying to build geometries. But to build a PostGIS geometry you will need to use a geometry constructor function like ST_Point(x, y).
