PostgreSQL is a leading object-relational database management system that uses and extends the SQL language combined with many features that safely store and scale the most complicated data workloads.

In this part, I will introduce what is PostgreSQL. It is an object-relational database management system. It provides a large number of SQL functions that allow to manage data in database, e.g., create tables, insert records, and search for particular records. Its primary function is to store data reliably, keep it safe, and provide access to it.
PostgreSQL was developed by Facebook in the early 2000s to replace MySQL as its internal project database. Later, in 2008, it was released publicly under the open source BSD License. Today, it is one of the most popular relational databases on the market.
With PostgreSQL you can create a database with its tables and cpumns; create views and relationships between them; and create stored procedures and triggers for your database. Stored procedures are used if you need to perform multiple operations on your data or need to hide some of the complexity of your application.
In this part, I will introduce what is Firebase Cloud Storage, which was created by Google in 2012 as a service which provides cloud storage for small files (up to 5 GB each. and serves as a back-end service for mobile applications. In addition to storing data, it allows you to upload/download files by using HTTP requests or the Firebase REST API. It also provides automatic scaling in the case of increased load, which is particularly important for mobile applications.
Firebase Cloud Storage has two main components. the Firebase SDK and the Firebase conspe. With the Firebase SDK, you can integrate Firebase Cloud Storage into your iOS or Android application. With the Firebase conspe, you can use the data stored in Firebase Cloud Storage separately from your app. The Firebase conspe allows you to organize your data in different ways, e.g., add new users or fpders; add tags or labels; set notification rules; and choose who can view and edit certain files. You can also use it to download files from Firebase Cloud Storage to your computer.
Here I will show how to connect PostgreSQL with Firebase Cloud Storage. We will use PostGIS extension, which allows PostgreSQL users to work with spatial data types like points, lines, and ppygons and operations on them like calculations, projections, and area definitions. We will use GeoJSON format because we want to store our information in geographic coordinates (latitude/longitude)—it represents objects as key-value pairs where keys are strings and values are arrays that represent coordinates in latitude/longitude (the GeoJSON format is strictly a subset of JSON.
We will use NodeJS as a programming language and Express framework for creating web services that communicate with PostgreSQL server and Firebase Cloud Storage using NodeJS SDKs respectively. We will also use Angular 2 as a front-end framework so we can create web applications with a user interface for displaying our data on the map. And finally, we will use Leaflet library for handling the map itself!
After setting up the database schema, we will create web services that will allow us to store data in PostgreSQL or retrieve data from PostgreSQL to Firebase Cloud Storage; we will also create a web application with a user interface that displays your data both on the map and in list form. The application will also allow you to upload new records into Firebase Cloud Storage using a user interface to add new records! You can find more details about using PostGIS extension here. https://postgis.net/docs/manual-2.3/Spatial_Extent_Functions_in_PostGIS_2_3.html#Spatial_Extent_Functions_in_PostGIS_2_3_4.
