comment How to highlight the area in google map on mouse hover
@simo, sorry to bother.. My application is global targetted, so i can't create the polygon/shapefile for all the areas, is there a open framework/wiki where i can download the shapefiles for a country/region.. or any idea about wikimapia shapefiles?

comment Best GIS system for high performance web application - PostGIS vs MongoDB
i absolutely agree with you.. mongo is very good option handling basic Geo data. currently am doing simpler spherical and bounding box queries, and its doing well.. One more thing i want to add is Solr lucene also providing the basic geo functions as mongo, and its quite fast too when using with faceted queries. currenlty am using the combination of both mongo & Solr..

comment Problem running bounding-box queries
mongo expects longtitude first.. so it wont work.. Finally after hours of digging i found its a problem in ruby driver not in the new calculated bottomLeft, and topRight values.. it works fine now...

comment Problem running bounding-box queries
yeah, thats what i did first after the problem, but the problem still persists with the new values too. so i got totally confused and asked whether there is any other way to do it.. :(
