I am new to the world of GIS and have an application where I would like
to use MySQL's (found in 4.1 alpha currently) Spatial Extensions. I
have a set of latitude and longitude for various locations and am trying
to figure out how to convert to the SRID units. I have started going
thru the tons of info on OpenGIS and other related map projection sites,
but it currently seems overwhelming. Has anyone out there converted
from lat/long to SRID units for point geometry type in MySQL??
If there are any sites or otherrefs for a beginning tutorial on GIS
topics please forward. I have been looking at PROJ.4 lib for performing
these conversions - I am on the right track? Thanks in advance...
