|Needs tests:||no||Patch needs improvement:||no|
Currently the GeoDjango distance API will produce inaccurate results for calculating distances on geodetic coordinate systems. The PostGIS distance_sphere provides such support, however, it only works on points (see PostGIS Reference - Measurement Functions).
Also discussed on the django-users mailing list.
