I have been using QGIS to insert point data accompanied by information for each point into PostGIS. When I open PGAdmin to take a look at the table rows I noticed a column near the start of each row called "geom" which is obviously point geometry with I believe a SRID of 4326.
Now my main questions are:
- Does QGIS add this to the database or is this something that PostGIS adds automatically.
- I'm going to be using a form which calls upon PHP to insert values into this databse table. Do I need to figure out the geometry or will PostGIS handle this for me?
I have looked at alot of information about SRID but a good bit of it is over my head.
