GeoSpatial data handling made easy with MySQL 8.0

Human geography examines the dynamics of cultures, societies and economies, and physical geography examines the dynamics of physical landscapes and the environment.

In this blog i am going to explain what are the new Geography features available in MySQL 8.0

Major Difference in MySQL 5.7 & 8.0 Geography :

There is a big change from MySQL 5.7 to 8.0 when it comes to spatial data, it’s support, multiple spatial reference systems and geographic computations.

This means that the SRIDs of geometries actually have meaning and affect computations. In 5.7 and earlier, however, the SRIDs(spatial reference identifier) are ignored, and all computations are Cartesian.

Installation :

On Centos and RHEL :

[root@vm1 vagrant]# yum install pv

1.0. Introduction:

MySQL 8.0 was released with awesome features. One of its most prominent features is CTE (Common Table Expression).

The Common Table Expression can be used to construct complex queries in a more readable manner. In this blog, I have described how the CTE works with some useful examples.

1.1 What is CTE?

A Common Table Expression (CTE) is the result set of the query, which exists temporarily and uses only within the context of a larger query.

The CTE provides better readability and performance in comparison with a derived table.

In a normal query the temporary result set that exists only within the execution scope of a single SQL statement.
