This talk provides an overview of leveraging geospatial data in Neo4j. We demonstrate how to build applications using the new built-in spatial functionality introduced in Neo4j 3.4, explaining internals and APIs. We also cover decision choices between using Neo4j built-in spatial functionality and the Neo4j Spatial plugin. We’ll also show how to import OpenStreetMap data into Neo4j and query it using Cypher. Finally, we’ll show how to leverage user-defined procedures for working with polygon geometries in a JavaScript map application.
