So, I have a group of polygons stored in PostGIS. I'm trying to build a web application with Google Base maps (using Google Maps API). Now, How do i output the polygons in the right format so that Google Maps API can read it?

I know about ST_Askml which outputs the data as KML, but what is the Google Maps function to read a kml on the fly? Or is there an alternative to outputting it as kml? Can i pull out the co-ordinates of each point on a polygon and load it onto the API on the fly?

  • @Mapperz, your comment should be answer. This question is "de facto" answered and accepted, should be also "de database" :-). – Tomas Apr 25 '12 at 20:26
