PostGIS vs Sequel Pro: What are the differences?

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; Sequel Pro: MySQL database management for Mac OS X. Sequel Pro is a fast, easy-to-use Mac database management application for working with MySQL databases.

PostGIS and Sequel Pro can be primarily classified 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, Sequel Pro provides the following key features:

  • Quickly filter and paginate table content
  • Fast, threaded UI
  • Document based connections — Save your connection and share it

"De facto GIS in SQL" is the primary reason why developers consider PostGIS over the competitors, whereas "Free" was stated as the key factor in picking Sequel Pro.

PostGIS and Sequel Pro are both open source tools. Sequel Pro with 6.73K GitHub stars and 591 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than PostGIS with 645 GitHub stars and 246 GitHub forks.

Movielala, Algorithmia, and Nano Solutions are some of the popular companies that use Sequel Pro, whereas PostGIS is used by HotelTonight, Key Location, and DNT. Sequel Pro has a broader approval, being mentioned in 46 company stacks & 23 developers stacks; compared to PostGIS, which is listed in 53 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.
