Today Heroku announced geospatial support for Heroku Postgres with PostGIS 2.0. Heroku Postgres is increasingly enabling rich use cases – adding services from key/value datatype in hstore, querying across postgres databases with dblink, and now adding rich geospatial functionality. Adding PostGIS within Postgres database reduces the number of services you need to add to your stack, reducing complexity and allowing you to build in location-based functionality into apps faster. Get started integrating location into your apps today by provisioning your Heroku Postgres database and exploring the functionality of PostGIS 2.0 or read more about it on the Heroku Postgres Blog.
