All About Neo4j Spatial (Neo4j Online Meetup #44)

Neo4j 3.4 delivered some powerful new spatial and temporal features for modeling and querying graphs that include location and date-time elements. In this talk we will show you how these capabilities can be used to build web application with interactive maps that allow intuitive querying of spatial and temporal graphs. To really turbo-charge your application we’ll show you how to import data from the single biggest spatial graph ever, the OpenStreetMap graph, as well as how to extend the capabilities of Neo4j from mere point locations to polygon searches. —————————– ABOUT THE SPEAKER —————————– Craig Taverner Team Lead, Neo4j Spatial and Neo4j Cypher Craig is the team lead for Neo4j Cypher and product lead for Spatial.
