Massive vs PostGIS: What are the differences?

What is Massive? A Postgres-Centric Data Access Tool. Massive's goal is to help you get data from your database. This is not an ORM, it's a bit more than a query tool - our goal is to do just enough, then get out of your way. Massive embraces SQL completely, and helps you out when you don't feel like writing another mundane select * from statement.

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.

Massive and PostGIS can be categorized as "Database" tools.

Massive and PostGIS are both open source tools. It seems that Massive with 2.55K GitHub stars and 194 forks on GitHub has more adoption than PostGIS with 645 GitHub stars and 246 GitHub forks.
