Spatial Data Types

Hi Guys,

I need some help if possible?

We have an application responsible for Geocoding and Reverse-Geocoding as well as Geofencing.
I have created an extension that saves the Lat/Lon values to the database like:

"DECLARE @Geom geometry = geometry::STGeomFromText('POLYGON (({4}))', 4326)......."

I would like to know if you will be supporting Spatial (Geography/Geometry) datatypes in the future?
If I have missed it would someone please point me in the right direction?

Here is a link to what I mean:

Kind regards

Hi Ferdinand, 

Welcome to OutSystems discussions.

I'm assuming that you're using this in a context of a GIS project.

Tipically for this needs the database engines have add ons to it so you can have and manage geography spatial data type and functions.

Hope it helps
Hi Ricardo,

Thanks for the suggestion. Spatial data types are native types in SQL 2008/2012. What I wanted to know is if the Outsystems platform might support this in the future.
Currently I am uing an extension for this purpose and it works fine, but it would be great to have these in the platform as well.

Thanks again
FC Malan


Hi Ferdinand, 

I would suggest you to add that on our Idea area maybe it gets the full attention to the product roadmap ;)
