Figure out what is the best way to incorporate units in geosearch
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Right now geosearch (see T133335) uses km as primary unit of distance. Blazegraph has direct support for:

Meters, Kilometers, Feet, Miles, NauticalMiles

We need to think which ones we want to support and how.

@Lydia_Pintscher I'd be happy to hear your opinion on this - would you think this would be of any interest or supporting just kilometers is good enough for now?

Just for me to understand it: This is about the kilometer you'd use in "Give me all airports within 5km of this geocoordinate"? If so then I think that is good enough for now.

Yes, right now we only support km there, though Blazegraph can support more units.

If it's not too much a burden, I suppose Miles and NauticalMiles could be useful for some users.

Feet and Meter might not add much and be too granular for most coordinates.
