    ReQL command: geojson

    Command syntax

    r.geojson(geojson) → geometry

    Description

    Convert a GeoJSON object to a ReQL geometry object.

    RethinkDB only allows conversion of GeoJSON objects which have ReQL equivalents: Point, LineString, and Polygon. MultiPoint, MultiLineString, and MultiPolygon are not supported. (You could, however, store multiple points, lines and polygons in an array and use a geospatial multi index with them.)

    Only longitude/latitude coordinates are supported. GeoJSON objects that use Cartesian coordinates, specify an altitude, or specify their own coordinate reference system will be rejected.

    Example: Convert a GeoJSON object to a ReQL geometry object.

    import com.rethinkdb.model.Geojson;
    
    // GeoJSON object:
    //      {
    //          "type": "Point",
    //          "coordinates": [ -122.423246, 37.779388 ]
    //      }
    Geojson geo = r.hashMap("type, "Point")
                   .with("coordinates", r.array(-122.423246, 37.779388));
    
    r.table("geo").insert(
        r.hashMap("id", "sfo")
         .with("name", "San Francisco")
         .with("location", r.geojson(geo))
    ).run(conn);
