Thank you for providing awesome tool for Windows development!

PostGIS ( )is a spatial database extension for PostgreSQL (adds geometry-related functions). It is very commonly used in
OpenStreetMap project software etc.

It would be great if you could add this module to current PostgreSQL installation (via checkbox in PostgreSQL Application Stack Builder or separate installer).

I planned to use it for osm2pgsql project testing:

If woul be perfect if you could also add small Python module psycopg2 for PostgreSQL communication :)

    Any progress?
    Maybe is some beta environment?

    Sorry, didn't have a chance to look into that. Are there any instructions for how to install that extension to PG?

    The instructions are simple - just run Application Stack Builder from Postgres and install Spatial Extensions -> PostGis 2.1 bundle (default settings will work)
    Creating demo db is optional, it may be done by applications to save HD space. You can also delete downloaded postgis archive from the home folder.

    Installing psycopg2 is even easier - only choosing the installer for installed Python version is needed

    Any chance this could be implemented?
    At least two important open-source map-related projects are hoping to run some small tests on Appveyour but have no needed extension...

    Is PostGIS 2.2 bundle OK?

    Yes, 2.2 will be quite fine!
    If possible, please also add Python access module Psycopg2 from here:
    (for installed 32/64 python versions) to reduce using of non-reliable and `pip install ...`.

    The project to check if Posgis works:
    (missing functions are just from that)

    Here is the workaround for installing PostGIS 2.2.2 to PostgreSQL 9.4.

      - postgresql94
      - curl -L -O -S -s
      - 7z x
      - xcopy /e /y /q postgis-pg94-binaries-2.2.2w64gcc48 C:\Progra~1\PostgreSQL\9.4

    About PostgreSQL 9.5, there may be still the following issue.
