Regina Obe and Leo Hsu are co-founders of Paragon Corporation, a database and web application consulting company based in Boston. They have extensive experience with PostGIS and PostgreSQL. They are co-authors of PostGIS in Action (1st and 2nd editions) (publisher Manning) and PostgreSQL: Up and Running (1st and 2nd editions) (publisher O'Reilly).

They are currently working on more books, pgRouting: a Practical Guide, (publisher LocatePress) and PostgreSQL: Up and Running (3rd edition).

We'll cover 10 problems where we've found PostGIS to be the easiest and fastest tool for the job. Areas covered will be: Proximity Analysis Statistical aggregation of data by location Mapping Routing Geocoding Unlikely uses for PostGIS -- non-spatial problems solved by re-imagining the problem as a spatial one. Extra focus on new tricks made possible by PostGIS 2.3+ and PostgreSQL 9.6+.
