My plan was to take my application into SQL 08 from 05 since my hosting service now has it available. I was intent on killing all of my lat/long information and storing my geospatial data in geography columns.
I’ve got lots of lat/long information for my Silverlight 2 application and I’m now tinkering with getting the elevation view working in my spare time. The problem is that the distances are very small and the haversine formulae I’ve located on the internet are all either miles or kilometers. Not going to work when your next position is only 50 feet away. So I wrote the simple SQL function below based directly on Seth Long’s version here.
