Graph databases are an important to store data to maintain and represent relationships that exist between different entities. For example, a graph node could present a person, with a connection presenting a family relationship or employment situation.

By storing the data as a graph it enables more advanced and rich queries to be performed over the data, allowing for greater information to be obtained.

In this scenario you will understand how to use a Graph database to perform GeoSpatial queries. These queries use location data to identify relevant records.

The scenario explains:

  • Creating Documents

  • Finding Nearby Locations

  • Calculating Location Distance
