In this thesis, we present a specialized database Tile38 for spatial data. For comparison, we chose two relational databases, PostgreSQL and MySQL, that can also be used to manage spatial data. We will show how we can insert spatial data into these databases and in what format. For each database, we have described some of the key methods and commands for managing spatial data.
We developed web application to work with OpenStreetMap spatial data and Trola.si API, where we show how Tile38 does compared to PostgreSQL.
