PostGIS adds support for geographic objects to the PostgreSQL
object-relational database. In effect, PostGIS "spatially enables"
the PostgreSQL server, allowing it to be used as a backend spatial
database for geographic information systems (GIS), much like ESRI's
SDE or Oracle's Spatial extension. PostGIS follows the OpenGIS
"Simple Features Specification for SQL".
This package contains the PostGIS userland binaries for importing and
exporting shape and raster files: pgsql2shp, raster2pgsql, and shp2pgsql.

depend on them in autopkgtests in other packages.

was already transitional in stretch, and the PG 10 variant was never in a
stable release.
