ForerunnerDB Geospatial Queries

Geospatial Indexes

Geospatial queries allow you to find documents that are tagged with longitude / latitude coordinates by distance from a centre point.

ForerunnerDB will return results ordered by distance from the centre point, closest first. Geospatial indexing in ForerunnerDB takes the longitude and latitude coordinates in a document and converts them to an internal geohash. Geohashes are then used inside a b-tree to query nearby hashes in a performant manor.

Geospatial queries will only work on collections with a geospatial (2d) index.
