Newbie Query : Can ES be used for searching spatial data


(Anuj Mehta) #1

Hi

I am trying to implement a basic Geocoder where-in for any given address I
try to search for street, city, etc information from my database.

I had following queries

  1. Can I use Elastic Search as a DB to store and quickly retrieve
    street, city, state, latitude, longitude etc info?
  2. As a requirement I want to dynamically change the data of this DB -
    maybe add new data, delete existing, modify existing...Does ES supports
    dynamic search? I mean if data changes at runtime then will ES searches on
    this new data?
  3. Search performance will be highest priority. Will ES be a good in
    this case?

Regards,
Anuj

1 - It sure does, have a search through the docs for geo
http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/index.html
2 - When you send data to ES it indexes it and is then available for search
in near-realtime.
3 - That's what it's built for :slight_smile:
