Lack of documentation for GIS in MariaDB KB

    Details

      Description

      In 10.1.3 we are going to have new GIS features that need to be documented (see the separate email from Holyfoot); but I also found that our existing documentation for GIS is scarce and apparently incomplete. I started with the simple function ST_AsText(...), which is apparently a synonym for AsText(...), but couldn't find any mention of it. I suppose there are many more missing.

      I also had a brief chat with a user who, after taking a quick look at our KB, said that "maria gis implementation is still a bit poor" – which might be true to some extent, but I suppose the lack of documentation is also a part of the problem which creates this impression.

      The area needs to be revised and consistently documented.
