Firstly, I would like to thank the team for such a great tool but we developers are facing a lot of problems due to the lack of proper documentation. The distance param in ST.[IsWithinDistance], is it miles? I am trying to search for all points that are in a 1.5 mile radius of another point.

Any sort of help would be appreciated.
