pgweb vs PostGIS: What are the differences?

What is pgweb? Web-based PostgreSQL database browser written in Go. This is a web-based browser for PostgreSQL database server. Its written in Go and works on Mac OSX, Linux and Windows machines. Main idea behind using Go for the backend is to utilize language's ability for cross-compile source code for multiple platforms. This project is an attempt to create a very simple and portable application to work with PostgreSQL databases.

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.

pgweb and PostGIS belong to "Database Tools" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by pgweb are:

  • Connect to local or remote server
  • Browse tables and table rows
  • Get table details: structure, size, indices, row count

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

pgweb and PostGIS are both open source tools. It seems that pgweb with 5.94K GitHub stars and 419 forks on GitHub has more adoption than PostGIS with 645 GitHub stars and 246 GitHub forks.
