Import Natural Earth data into PostGIS
In this tutorial, we'll learn how to use Baremaps to import Natural Earth data in a PostGIS database.
Notice that the following steps assume that the Apache Baremaps CLI and PostGIS are installed.
Natural Earth (opens in a new tab) is a public domain map dataset available at 1:10m, 1:50m, and 1:110 million scales.
The following workflow will download the Natural Earth data, decompress it, and finally import it in the database.
baremaps workflow execute --file workflow.json
In this tutorial, we learnt how to import Natural Earth data in PostGIS.
Now that you have inserted the data into the PostGIS database, you can use follow the Serve Vector Tiles from PostGIS example to serve your PostGIS data directly as Vector Tiles in a web application with live reload capabilities.
