      Description

      Spatial Convenience Function:

      This function does not exist in any version of MariaDB but does on MySQL 5.7+ and is critical for spatial conversions. ST_Distance_Sphere makes use for calculating the distance of coordinates from points.

      For more information reference MySQL's documentation directly at:
      https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/spatial-convenience-functions.html
