The web app i'm building needs pretty heavy geolocation features so i've turned to the GIS module. It installed fine and the points are available - when I declare a DBField a GeoPoint it comes up in PhpMyAdmin as a field type point, from there, however the behaviour gets weird. I'm using the class methods to set lat and lng but from what I can tell all it's actually setting is this " Rew??F??sCSvPe@" weird unicode string, and not exhibitng the behaviour that the mysql docs say. I've tried using the setLat and setLng methods and as far as php is concerned they work, but then this is what gets set into the db. for now i'm just going to declare lat/lng number columns, but is there something i'm missing? is there a better way to do this? do you need code sample? is this module still supported?
