I'm trying to perform in-line queries by sorting geographic coordinates, the
problem is only the latitude (e.g. the first number that appears in the
coordinate 33.3434,-44.2332 ) is being recognized and sorted - everything
else is being ignored. So I can effectively say "only show points between
this point North and this point South" but the east and west are free.
Is there any way to do this? Should I give it an N-aray type of number;
number and try to sort that way? (I tried this, but I have a large dataset,
and might not have been taking effect fast enough)
Should I make it a string, enable ~, and search for ~33.343*, -44.233* (and
create a radius of size dependant on the decimal point i place *'s) - or a
multi-type of strings and do that?
Or should I start hacking up some code? It seems weird that there isn't a
built in function for this - the values lat/long can be passed onto
services, but in terms of sorting they seem to be stuck together as one
Thanks for the help everyone!
p.s. tried with separating the long/lat with ";", no luck though :
