I did it without some special features and datatypes some time ago. feel free
to modify and use for your own. It should give you an idea how to do it.
sin(radians(c1.latitude)) * sin(radians(c2.latitude))
+ cos(radians(c1.latitude)) * cos(radians(c2.latitude))
* cos(radians(c1.longitude - c2.longitude))
) AS distance
coordinates AS c1
CROSS JOIN coordinates AS c2
I had some problems with the calculation inside acos() sometimes being greater
than 1, which should not occur. Please use a
CASE WHEN sin(...) > 1 THEN 1 ELSE sin(...) END
if you have the same problem.
