Hey guys, Contentful noob here.
I note that Contentful supports geoposition (lat/lng) fields. What’s the best way to query these fields given that you’d normally want to run calculations on them, to establish which items in a store were relevant (proximate) to a user’s position? If I were doing this with a backend and database that I controlled, I’d submit the user’s geoposition to the server, and use that in calculations in my SQL to determine which records to return.
I asked Contentful support but since I’m on the free plan they wouldn’t help, but did say that running calculations while querying wasn’t supported.
Obviously I could retrieve all records and do the calculations in my app, but that would be really inefficient where a store has thousands of rows.
