    MySQL Geo/Spacial Search

    I have to design a website where users will be interacting with a map in depth. One feature is a "nearby" lat/lon searching capability.

    I'm planning to use the MySQL spacial indexing features, but I have no idea how they function.

    Can anyone fill me in?

    Thanks
    I can't believe I ate the whole thing
