I have a lot of points with a GPS tracker and I need to simplify them.

I create view (location_view) in PostgreSQL (with PostGIS):

 SELECT location.id,
    st_makepointm(location.latitude, location.longitude, (location.id)::double precision) AS point
   FROM location;

I used SQL:

SELECT st_simplify(st_makeline(d.point), 0.0001) from location_view d 

And next I got LineString value and brought line to the map. But LineString сontains only coordinates. I need date in point.

How to add date to Point/LineString?

  • do you have a date in the location table? – Ian Turton Dec 10 '18 at 10:05
  • yes, column location.added – lampa Dec 10 '18 at 10:11
  • do you want to add the date to each individual point of your GPS track, or for the whole track one date? – Michael Dec 10 '18 at 12:01
  • to each individual point of my GPS track – lampa Dec 10 '18 at 12:03
