In this talk we explore how to work with geospatial data in GraphQL with a focus on geospatial database integrations for GraphQL. We will cover how to model spatial data types such as points, lines, and polygons in GraphQL and cover some use cases for working with geospatial data in your API such as spatial search, location-based recommendations, and routing. We will learn how to leverage geospatial database functionality through GraphQL-database integrations such as PostGIS and Neo4j.
