graphqurl vs PostGIS: What are the differences?
Developers describe graphqurl as "Curl for GraphQL with autocomplete, subscriptions and GraphiQL". Made by the team at hasura.io, graphqurl is a curl like CLI for GraphQL. On the other hand, PostGIS is detailed as "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.
graphqurl and PostGIS can be primarily classified as "Database" tools.
Some of the features offered by graphqurl are:
- CLI for making GraphQL queries with autocomplete
- Run GraphiQL locally against any endpoint
- Use as a library with Node.js or from the browser
On the other hand, PostGIS provides the following key features:
- 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
graphqurl and PostGIS are both open source tools. It seems that graphqurl with 1.86K GitHub stars and 41 forks on GitHub has more adoption than PostGIS with 645 GitHub stars and 246 GitHub forks.
