I'm working with spatial/temporal data, stored in s3 (AWS). The data is in the format:
ID, Date, Lat, Lon 23424 2017-02-03T23:15:15Z 23.434 -5.2343 23424 2017-02-03T23:20:26Z 23.4356 -5.2637 etc...
What I want to do is import this data into QGIS. It is very large, several gb.
My current method is to use an Athena query to download the relevant data, as a csv. I then import the csv into a PostgreSQL database on my local machine, change the lat/long columns into a point geometry column, and import into QGIS as a POSTGIS layer.
This is time consuming, and also uses up space on my local machine.
Is there a way of connecting to the data stored externally on s3 instead?
I am pretty new to python, and I haven't used the python console much.
