<p>Are there any plans to use the support of PostGIS in PostgreSQL? So that we may optimize querying times for answering questions like<br>
● How many features lie within 100m?<br>
● What is the total length of a given road?<br>
● What is the total area of water in my city?<br>

<p>It may be a major effort but would pay off at larger scales. We're storing map data in our own custom format, as defined in <a href="https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/blob/master/db/structure.sql">https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/blob/master/db/structure.sql</a>.</p>
