[PG]mysql GIS [1] Creating Spatial data and using functions

With MySQL version 5 or higher, you can store GIS data and issue query over it . MySQL provides data types supporting openGIS requirements. Although MySQL does not support full spatial analysis, MBR-based support is very useful, if you want simple bounding box style query. To use this, you don't need any of additional package.

I found useful manual which covers almost everything I was looking for.
