  • GUI: shp2pgsql-gui which has both import and export support for geometry/geography

  • ogrfdw 1.1.4 - spatial foreign data wrapper for reading both spatial (spatial columns become postgis geometry) and non-spatial data. IMPORT FOREIGN SCHEMA support New features in 1.1 - character_encoding option and utility functions ogr_fdw_drivers(), ogr_fdw_version()

The simplest way to get PostGIS on Windows for the EnterpriseDb Windows PostgreSQL distribution is using the StackBuilder.

Refer to An Almost Idiot’s Guide Installing PostGIS on Windows or watch the video Getting started with PostGIS and QGIS on windows

  1. Download and install PostgreSQL from EnterpriseDB.
  2. Run the “StackBuilder” utility and install the PostGIS add-on.

If you want to use the zip, setup, and setup source files directly they are available:

  • Zip and Installer files The .zip files are just the binaries you can copy into your PostgreSQL installation and then enable in each database as usual. The exe are standard windows setup for 64-bit PostgreSQL.
  • Source Setup files The source setup files are useful if you want to build your own NSIS installer or create a single setup for your own project that also installs PostGIS. The Binary zip files should contain all the binary files you need to customize your own setup minus the documentation. You can also just extract the .exe setup file to get the binaries, but the extract sometimes gets mangled leaving out some of the postgis-gui subfolders.
