I've georreferenced a couple of points in a CartoDb table, so now I have a the_geom column of type point
I'd like to get all the points that are x meters away from a certain x,y point.
So far now, following this article http://unserializableone.blogspot.com.ar/2007/02/using-postgis-to-find-points-of.html, I tried the following:
SELECT * FROM my_contacts WHERE distance( transform(PointFromText('POINT(-34.6043183 -58.380924)', 4269),32661), the_geom ) < 1000
(in this case my x,y point would be -34.6043183 -58.380924 and I'm looking for locations within 1000 meters from it)
and I get this error: ERROR: Operation on two GEOMETRIES with different SRIDs
I tried without the transform, and I get the same error
How can I find out the SRIDs of the points in my db?
And how can I translate a lat, lon google map point to that desired SRID?
with this query I found out the SRID of my points
SELECT ST_SRID(the_geom) FROM my_contacts
they are all 4326, so I tried with
and this seems to work rather ok:
SELECT * FROM my_contacts where distance( transform(PointFromText( 'POINT(-34.6675645 -58.3712721)', 4326),4326), the_geom ) < 33.62 order by distance
but I just got thiw 33.62 by trial and error, I don't know how to translate it to meters, and the results when trying with a different point don't seem to be very consistent...
thanks a lot
