Hello ~~

Fist of all, gratz to all who made this app, U guys done geat work ;)

The app runs smooth can i can play with coordinates in a flat surface.

But what if I would like to store Latitude and Longitude in my database ?
Is it possible somehow ?

Hi NeSSaYah, it will be fine, just remember to use the correct srid for your coordinate system.. hth jd

Hey John ;)
Thnx for the reply.

But will that data stored will mind the curve of the earth ? Are there any operations / functions that i can use with L&L and will they give a good result minding the curve of the earth ?
Or is it just L&L on a flat surface ?

As long as the srid is correct on the geometries and any 'query' geometry is in the same coordinate system everything should be correct. Internally it uses NetTopologySuite to do the actual processing hth jd
