OSM data processing with PostgreSQL/PostGIS

The PostgreSQL database with the PostGIS extension is an important instrument in the toolbox of anybody working with OSM data. This talks explains the basics of working with the SQL database and how it handles geographic data. We'll look at getting OSM data in and out of such a database and what we can do with the data once it is in there.
