Is there a straightforward way to insert a GeoDataFrame into an existing schema? I love the geopandas.GeoDataFrame.to_postgis but this creates a new schema. I only need to insert a table into an existing schema.

geopandas.GeoDataFrame.to_postgis should not be creating a new schema. It will throw an error if the specified schema does not exist.

If you have created the schema, this should work just fine:

gdf.to_postgis('tablename', con, schema='schemaname')
  • Goodness. That makes sense. I had it right in front of my eyes. Thank you! Feb 13, 2022 at 21:37
