[postgis-users] Using a buffer with a LineString covering the whole world

Hi all,

I am currently running into this problem: I have a LineString in lat/long
coordinates (SRID 4326 - going from USA to france). I now want to create a
buffer in meters from this. So the normal way to transfrom the coordinates
to a planar CRS, buffering, then transforming back to 4326 does not work
(the Line is covering many UTM zones). What would be a reasonable solution
for this problem?

Thanks and regards,
