Hello Sir

Does Neo4j suitable for Spatial Computing ?
Can Neo4J be extended to cater the needs for Spatial Computing ?
Is there a provision for Custom Data Types in Neo4j ?
Can we see OGIS data types in Neo4J as in case of MySql.

My heartfelt best wishes for the Success of this book !!!

Thanks and Warm Regards

Hi Sangel,

Please see this post which answers the main question about whether Neo4j can support spatial data, but in short, via an extension, yes it can.

Neo4j stores properties as key value pairs where the key is a string, and the values can be either a primitive or an array of one primitive type. For example String, int and int[]. You can however use an object graph mapping (OGM) type framework, such as Spring Data Neo4j (SDN) to provide a mechanism for converting between custom Java types and the primitive types stored in the physical database and back out again. You would need to write Spring custom converter for this. There is a chapter on SDN in the book, additionally you can also get more info from the website here: http://docs.spring.io/spring-data/data-neo4j/docs/current/reference/html
