I've used the major proprietary databases for Geographic Information System work (ie. maps), and I was about to install MySql at home to teach myself about it and see what GIS / spatial stuff could be achieved with Open Source tools. Since this list has established that maybe MySql isn't all I was expecting it to be, can I ask whether PostgreSql is any better? Are there any other projects that you guys would recommend me to check out as a GIS/spatial database server?
