I have a table with points that has lon/lat, i am adding postgis to my app. I am doing some tests and I found type POINT and type GEOMETRY. I want to convert my columns lon and lat to a point. For what i was reading it made more sense to add column of type POINT, but most examples I have seeing use geometry to store points.
@Column(columnDefinition="Point") private Point locacion;
Should I use geometry or geography instead of points. I am planning on using this points to find other points within a certain radius of meters
