PostGIS vs Sequelize: 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; Sequelize: Easy-to-use multi sql dialect ORM for Node.js & io.js. Sequelize is a promise-based ORM for Node.js and io.js. It supports the dialects PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite and MSSQL and features solid transaction support, relations, read replication and more.

PostGIS can be classified as a tool in the "Database Tools" category, while Sequelize is grouped under "Object Relational Mapper (ORM)".

"De facto GIS in SQL" is the primary reason why developers consider PostGIS over the competitors, whereas "Good ORM for node.js" was stated as the key factor in picking Sequelize.

PostGIS and Sequelize are both open source tools. Sequelize with 19.2K GitHub stars and 3.01K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than PostGIS with 645 GitHub stars and 246 GitHub forks.

WebbyLab, Decision6, and Hostr are some of the popular companies that use Sequelize, whereas PostGIS is used by HotelTonight, Key Location, and Kalibrr. Sequelize has a broader approval, being mentioned in 38 company stacks & 33 developers stacks; compared to PostGIS, which is listed in 53 company stacks and 14 developer stacks.
