  Description     : extension for PostgreSQL adding spherical data types

 PgSphere, an extension for PostgreSQL, aims at providing uniform
 access to spherical data. It allows for a fast search and analysis for
 objects with spherical attributes in geographical, astronomical, or
 other applications using PostgreSQL.
 .
 By using an SQL interface, PgSphere's users can conveniently manage
 data of geographical objects around the world and astronomical data
 collections like star and other catalogues.

How it related to PostGIS?
I mean - can I use both PostGIS and pgsphere, do I need to chose only
one, can I use pgsphere for one thing and PostGIS to another?

Regards.

Hi Tomasz,

thanks a lot for your interest in pgsphere and sorry for the delay!

Frankly speaking, I'm not the best person to answer to your question.
A very rough distinction between the two extensions is that PostGIS
is a larger project mainly used by geoscientists, while pgsphere is
a smaller one, really appreciated within the astronomy community.
PostGIS deals with points on the surface of the earth taking into
account the complex shape of our planet, while pgsphere has been
designed for an ideal sphere.

You might get further hints by reading the discussions at
http://www.manning-sandbox.com/thread.jspa?threadID=37182
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9449404/geometric-calculations-in-a-django-model .

I'm really sorry for not giving a more detailed answer.

You can find my package (my try) at
http://mentors.debian.net/package/pgsphere
or download it by using the command
dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/pgsphere/pgsphere_1.1.1-1.dsc .

I'd be so grateful if you or anyone else could find the time to
review my package.

Best regards,
Florian

Hi,

A long time ago, you expressed interest in packaging pgsphere. Unfortunately,
it seems that it did not happen. In Debian, we try not to keep ITP bugs open
for a too long time, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to
refrain from packaging the software.

This is an automatic email to change the status of pgsphere back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in packaging pgsphere, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 680188 ITP: pgsphere -- extension for PostgreSQL adding spherical data types
 owner 680188 !
 thanks

It is also a good idea to document your progress on this ITP from time to
time, by mailing <680188@bugs.debian.org>.  If you need guidance on how to
package this software, please reply to this email, and/or contact the
debian-mentors@lists.debian.org mailing list.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
