Using ST_Node in PostGIS (where once I used ST_Union)

Just discovered ST_Node, a function in PostGIS just for noding geometries.  I used to use ST_Union for this, a potentially memory intensive operation.  Now I can use ST_Node.

For usage, see the PostGIS docs (requires 2.0 and GEOS 3.3.2 for bug free use).

Back to coding.  That is all.

  1. Indeed, that’s a good idea. It was a post approaching the austerity of a tweet, given my schedule at the moment. I will follow up with an illustration, hopefully soon. BTW, your blog is among my very favorites.
