Description (last modified by Shiv Baishya)

MySQL >=5.6.1 support accurate spatial functions, a.k.a, ST_ functions. Django 1.11 still uses MySQL's old MBR (minimum bounding rectangle) functions.

I am willing to migrate patch for django 1.9.2 to django 1.11 and create a pull request.

Here is an elaborated article on the advantages of the new MySQL's ST_ functions.

This looks like a duplicate of #22423. Have I misunderstood the issue? Did you see the patch in that ticket? Maybe you can update that patch and fix the failure. If so, please send the pull request to master. Per our supported versions policy. Django 1.11 only receives security and data loss fixes at this time.
