Add BRIN support for geometry and geography datatypes in PostGIS
Hello to everybody,
As many of you may know, PostgreSQL has recently introduced in core starting from version 9.5 a new kind of index, the Block Range INdex (BRIN). It is specifically thought to be used in a big data context, where
the GiST index cannot be easily contained in RAM and cannot be properly used.
We started to add support for geospatial BRIN indexes at last OS Geo code sprint in Paris this February, and we've finally cleaned up this patch and documentation and just added a pull request on the postgis github repository (https://github.com/postgis/postgis/pull/106).
