GeoSpatial Search on Latitude and longitude values

Has anyone implemented a GeoSpatial search in an Orchard module?

I'm looking at doing a property search module where the Lat and Lng values are entered by the editor setting up a property. A user is then able to enter a postcode / zipcode and radius in miles / km, the search would then only retrieve properties within that radius.

I know SQL 2008 implemented Geography types and I could possibly use a standard SQL query to retrieve that data but is there anyway to do this using nhibernate etc?

Any help is appreciated. 

Thanks

I've seen stuff like that, yes, but not in any publicly available modules. Your best best is probably to use an existing library.

Thanks BertrandLeRoy, do you have any suggestions for a existing library?

Sorry, no, but some Googling on "geo search .net" should get you something, hopefully.
