Back to Basics Webinar 4 - Advanced Indexing, Text and Geospatial Indexes
In this fourth webinar of our back to basics series Joe Drumgoole, Director of Developer Advocacy EMEA at MongoDB, looked into the full-text index support and geospatial support available in MongoDB. Full text support allows a user to index all the textual content in their database allowing “google like” searches over the data set. Geospatial indexes allow a user to store geospatial coordinates in the data and do searches based on the proximity of one point to another. This is a fundamental requirement for many mobile applications.
