Original topic: 在地理坐标检索的场景下,tidb如何使用

| username: TiDBer_7Q5CQdQd

In a business scenario where it is necessary to delineate coordinate points within a geographic coordinate range, how does TiDB support this? If used in conjunction with Elasticsearch, how should it be designed?

Are you asking for a solution in the community? It feels like there are no answers… :upside_down_face:

From another perspective, if the business scenario involves storing coordinates and you don’t use TiDB but use MySQL, how do you plan to handle it?

I don’t have a solution.
However, if you want to synchronize data from TiDB to another system in real-time, you should mostly look into TiCDC-related content.

It seems that TiDB does not support spatial data types and functions, while MySQL does.

Does TiDB have plans to support it in the future?

Why don’t you ask the TiDB vendor?

I have seen that it will be supported later.

In the current roadmap, GIS is listed under the “Future” column. According to the current plan, this future version will definitely be released later than the mid-2024 LTS version.

Thank you, it will probably be 2025.
