Installing on MacOS

  • A popular distribution particularly for newbies is It includes generally latest version of PostgreSQL and PostGIS. Great for development and testing. Do not mix with other installations.

  • Homebrew users can just run “brew install postgis” and tends to be a favorite for more advanced users since there are brew scripts for most of the popular PostgreSQL extensions, not always present in other Mac distributions.

  • The EnterpriseDB OSX PostgreSQL combination from EnterpriseDB includes generally latest stable minor version of PostGIS.
