Locate all the things

A session at PHPBenelux Conference 2017

Saturday 28th January, 2017

11:40am to 12:40pm (WET)

In this talk you will learn how to effectively store, retrieve and display
geospatial data, such as roads, points of interests and more.

First we will be importing an OpenStreetMap dataset covering London into
MongoDB. This is not trivial due to the amount of data.
After importing, we will look at which types of queries we can
run to find things. Either by predicates, or with geospatial queries.

And last we will have a look at how to display the data that we’ve requested,
through a website using the Leaflet mapping library.
