For those coming from other databases or thinking about which spatial database platform suits their needs best, we have completed a survey which can be found at:

http://www.bostongis.com/PrinterFriendly.aspx?content_name=sqlserver2008r2_oracle11gr2_postgis15_compare

This compares SQL Server 2008 R2 spatial support, Oracle 11G R2 Locator and Spatial,
and PostGIS 1.5 spatial. For SQL Server and PostGIS 1.5, we break this up into the geometry and geography types that each offer. For Oracle we break this into the built-in Locator offering as well as the priced Spatial add-on.

The compare is one that focuses on what proprietary and open source tools support each,
the basic spatial functions provided by each, pricing, and various other miscellaneous items. We hope this is a helpful critique for decision.
