ReQL command: geojson

Command syntax

r.geojson(geojson) → geometry


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.

geo_json = {
    'type': 'Point',
    'coordinates': [ -122.423246, 37.779388 ]
    'id': 'sfo',
    'name': 'San Francisco',
    'location': r.geojson(geo_json)
