Christopher Jones' Blog:
Location Awareness With Oracle Spatial in PHP
March 27, 2008 @ 07:50:11

Christopher Jones has posted a script to his blog today giving an example of how you can use the Spatial functionality of Oracle in a PHP application:

Oracle Spatial is a powerful library for adding location awareness to applications. This script uses the core subset of Spatial, called Oracle Locator, which is included in all Oracle Database editions.

His example connects to the database resource and makes a few example SQL queries: one that uses the sod_nn() function built in to the Spatial package to grab the store locations close to the customers, another that finds the latitude and longitude for a customer's information and a method for querying an object collection of locations in a given area.
