comment Examples of web-mapping for plantations
What is a plantation company? It's hard to understand this question without knowing what this key word means.

comment What are the best databases for storing spatial data? Pros and Cons
I've also found the learning curve steep, but postgis/postgresql is excellent. I highly recommend PostGIS in Action (postgis.us) if you do consider using it!

comment Would it be possible to use geohash for proximity searches?
Is there a significant difference between using a geohash and storing your lat/long in eastings/northings (for example)? Presumably with both you can change your search precision by trimming chars/digits. (This is purely a question out of curiosity - I'm unfamiliar with this topic).
