Is there any plan to add support for the new Entity Framework spatial types to WCF Data Services? It was really nice when they added them to EF in the June 2011 CTP so now I can manipulate them server side but I would also like to be able send some kind of representation to the client.
Is there a work around for this in the mean time? I tried to use the IgnoreProperties attribute on my Geometry property and add a GeometryAsBase64String property but apparently IgnoreProperties doesn't work with EF. What alternatives to EF do I have if I want to use spatial types with WCF Data Services?
