If you are particularly interested in using meters as the unit for the search, you can use geography data types instead of geometry types. All geography based calculations return values in meters. Also, ST_DWITHIN is designed for this type of queries: select * from zones z where ST_DWITHIN(Geography(ST_Transform(z.geom,4326)), ...
You can use Mapshaper for this, and then dissolve from the command line: mapshaper --dissolve -i your_data.geojson
It's easy to do with QGis. Open QGis Drag&Drop the geojson file to qgis use the "dissolve" tool in the vector menu (it's inside a submenu). use the "dissolve all" option from the dropdown this will create a shapefile (check the box to output to the map) which you can then again save as a geojson file by right-clicking it in the layer pane and choosing ...
Just mousing over a location shows the elevation at the bottom of the screen, along with lat/lon. There's also the Elevation Profile feature: https://support.google.com/earth/answer/181393?hl=en
Google Mercator is now EPSG:3857, while 900913 has been dropped from the list of EPSG codes. Furthermore, there is some kind of hack inside the projection definition, because Google mercator is calculated on a sphere (a=b), but the lat/lon coordinates are that of the WGS84 ellisoid. This is only implemented correctly for EPSG:3857.
I was actually trying to do the same thing except with the OH south state plane grid and I came across your question. I was getting wrong results with 3735, now I get correct results with 3729. I expect if you change from 3734 to 3728, you will get the correct results. EPSG:3728: NAD83(NSRS2007) / Ohio North (ftUS) EPSG:3729: NAD83(NSRS2007) / Ohio South ...
Late to the party, but with a hopefully useful contribution. Building on scw's answer using geopy, I wrote a small function that does the calculation for a shapely LineString object with arbitrarily many coordinates. It uses a pairs iterator from Stackoverflow. Main feature: the docstrings are much longer than the snippets. def line_length(line): ...
The .prj file is definitely wrong, it should contain a WKT definition. It looks rather like a mapinfo projection definition file. Try EPSG:3787 MGI Slovene National Grid or EPSG:3912 MGI 1901 / Slovene National Grid. They differ in the datum shift.
