Yes, but only with MyISAM tables, so be sure to specify that as the storage engine type when you create your tables.

The reason for this is that spatial support for InnoDB is available only in MySQL 5.7.5+, but the newest version we're running is 5.6.35.

Thanks, do you have any plans to migrate to mysql 5.7?
