comment Online/offline tool for collection of coordinates for simulation purposes
Could you clarify a bit? Two points is a line, so do you want to find all points that intersect a line? Or do you want to generate a line with vertices every 500 meters? As far as the Polygon, do you want to find all the points inside the polygon? Do you want a library?

comment How can I preserve ObjectIDs in a Featureset returned from an SOE?
Yes you do. The limit is datasource-specific. If you batch read them 50 at a time, it may be slower than usual, but it will keep you in the safe side.

comment MapQuest License
The FB terms of service for their Places API are more liberal than the MapQuest ones (which were referred by you in your question). They used to be more strict about it, but know they just want people to use it and will look the other way - for now.

The risk? You are violating the agreement. If you are "Joe Schmoe", they probably just block your account and are done with it. If you are bigger, you will probably hear from their lawyers.

comment How to create a circle in PostGIS?
Nicklas, you are correct about the casting and I agree with you 100% about the local projection (i.e knowing your data). Nevertheless, if the answer is that he just wants to have "world-wide" data, IMHO, the casting logic inside the Geography type will do a much better job at figuring out what SR is appropriate for that particular distance operation rather than any other complicated custom logic. Another good thing about the geography type is that although a lot of the operations are currently casted to cartesian math, the operations keep getting updated to use sphere mathematics.
