Imported the following shape file:
shp2pgsql -c -s 2262 MCGIS_Towns_Villages public.towns | pgsql -d database
SELECT gid, name,st_astext(the_geom) as the_geom FROM towns
The multipolygon I get back is does NOT have points that are in latitude longitude types of numbers.
If I do:
SELECT gid, name,st_askml(the_geom) as the_geom FROM towns
The data I get back has latitude and longitude type of data.
Why is this?
