I am still trying to understand the field types available in MySQL, so
I am hoping to be able to call upon the experience and knowledge of you
guys to try and get my head around this.
I am trying to figure out which field type to use when storing Latitude
and Longitude values.
The field type would need to be able to handle numbers between -180 and
180, out to about 8 decimal spaces (maybe more).
I realise that this is a simple question, but I would appreciate any
help you can give.
