'the_geom' as a mandatory name

Reported by: pdoria Owned by: anton
Priority: minor Milestone: Version 1.1
Component: Others Version: 1.02
Keywords: Cc:



I've just begun testing pgRouting with my own set of data. the geometry column was stupidly named 'geometry'. Unless I'm off my rocker :] What I've found from your functions is that all of them force the use of a geometry column named 'the_geom' ... This doesn't cut it with existing data already being used by web apps relying on the existing table's geometry column name... IMHO your functions *should* automagically guess the geometry column's name ... (yes, i know... there might be more than one geometry columns...)

Please set me straight if I'm just raving here ... :]

Best regards, Pedro Doria Meunier

On behalf of Horst Duelfer I added his Dijkstra improvement. See  http://postgis.refractions.net/pipermail/postgis-users/2008-December/022155.html

Hi, Glad to see that steps are being taken to overcome the problem... :) Now what about dijkstra_sp_directed ? Could you please fix that as well?

BR, Pedro Doria Meunier
