Subject Recommended floating-point type for latitude and longitude
Author Daniel Albuschat
Hello there,

I'd like to save global latitude and longitude data in my database,
which can look like this:
Longitude: 7.33220348221289
Latitude: 51.1492514558089

My best guess is using numeric(18,2) and always multipy the value by
10000000000 before
storing it to the database, but I'd like to hear your opinion on this.
