PostGIS vs Debezium: What are the differences?
What is PostGIS? Open source spatial database. PostGIS is a spatial database extender for PostgreSQL object-relational database. It adds support for geographic objects allowing location queries to be run in SQL.
What is Debezium? An open source distributed platform for change data capture. Start it up, point it at your databases, and your apps can start responding to all of the inserts, updates, and deletes that other apps commit to your databases. It is durable and fast, so your apps can respond quickly and never miss an event, even when things go wrong.
PostGIS and Debezium can be categorized as "Database" tools.
Some of the features offered by PostGIS are:
- Processing and analytic functions for both vector and raster data for splicing, dicing, morphing, reclassifying, and collecting/unioning with the power of SQL
- raster map algebra for fine-grained raster processing
- Spatial reprojection SQL callable functions for both vector and raster data
On the other hand, Debezium provides the following key features:
- Do more with your data
- Simplify your apps
- Never miss a beat
PostGIS is an open source tool with 672 GitHub stars and 251 GitHub forks. Here's a link to PostGIS's open source repository on GitHub.
