Is the "fastfood.csv" file going to be made available?
Thanks.

Re: Chapter 1 data
I want to echo Rick01's question. Having this would be very useful. It isn't contained in the postgis_in_action_data.zip file current available from postgis.us companion site.

Re: Chapter 1 data
Its contained in the postgis_in_action_data.zip file

We will note this in the front matter of the book.

For those who just want to work thru each chapter separately, we are also providing the code and data downloads for each chapter where possible.

On the chapter listings page
http://www.postgis.us/chapters

You'll see a paper clip where we have a self-contained download file for that chapter available that includes the data and code.

You'll also see the download link on the chapter details page where its available

http://www.postgis.us/chapter_01

We've put up the separate download file for chapter 1 already and will be doing the same for the other chapters.

Re: Chapter 1 data
Hi,

I just downloaded the zip file (I had already downloaded it earlier today), and confirmed that it does not contain the fastfoods.csv file. I think you may need to re-roll the archive.

Ah indeed you are right. I guess we had packaged it up but neglected to put it on the website.

Try now.

Thanks,
Leo and Regina

Re: Chapter 1 data
The current version of postgis_in_action_data.zip does have the data.

I actually made my own data file like

a, 21.5, 155.0
b, 22.0, 156.0

then tested as per your instructions and everything worked. Wew, but if it didn't I wish I had a data sample.

That is, when referring to data in the box it would be nice to have the first 2 or 3 lines of data as a sample.

Thanks Craig
