Name
Description
Selects geometries that intersect with a GeoJSON geometry. The 2dsphere index supports $geoIntersects.
Selects geometries within a bounding GeoJSON geometry. The 2dsphere and 2d indexes support $geoWithin.
Returns geospatial objects in proximity to a point. Requires a geospatial index. The 2dsphere and 2d indexes support $near.
Returns geospatial objects in proximity to a point on a sphere. Requires a geospatial index. The 2dsphere and 2d indexes support $nearSphere.
Name
Description
Specifies a rectangular box using legacy coordinate pairs for $geoWithin queries. The 2d index supports $box.
Specifies a circle using legacy coordinate pairs to $geoWithin queries when using planar geometry. The 2d index supports $center.
Specifies a circle using either legacy coordinate pairs or GeoJSON format for $geoWithin queries when using spherical geometry. The 2dsphere and 2d indexes support $centerSphere.
Specifies a geometry in GeoJSON format to geospatial query operators.
Specifies a maximum distance to limit the results of $near and $nearSphere queries. The 2dsphere and 2d indexes support $maxDistance.
Specifies a minimum distance to limit the results of $near and $nearSphere queries. For use with 2dsphere index only.
Specifies a polygon to using legacy coordinate pairs for $geoWithin queries. The 2d index supports $center.
Deprecated. Modifies a $geoWithin and $near queries to ensure that even if a document matches the query multiple times, the query returns the document once.
