Anything faster than FindGeoNearPoint()?

Feb 11, 2010 at 5:23 PM


I have been using the method cited in these discussions FindGeoNearPoint() for finding geos near a point.

It works well.  But when I have to iterate through hundreds of thousands of points, it's not fast enough.

Is there any other technique I can use to find geos/shapes near a particular point - at a much faster speed?

Hi Frank, If you have the option go with a database back end, preferably one with real spatial indexes. Cheers jd
