Re: Distance in meters between two points

Hello Flavio. I'm not a professional programmer so be careful about what I say but I have used the GIS functions a lot and found them very useful.

The problem with glength is that it is 2D or planar so I calculate distance using PHP. Annoying initially but once you have a function, it's OK.

I don't know how to install MySql and compile UDFs so can't help there.
