GeoPoint Questions

Hi there,

I am knees deep n using GeoPoints and have a couple of questions:

  • Is it possible to return a count of nearby geopoints rather than the actual geopoints? Am doing some work in iOS in the background and just need to know if there is something nearby but don’t need to know what it is. Working under the assumption that a count is lighter/less network traffic.

  • When I delete an item that has a geopoint, the geopoint doesn’t get deleted and I end up with deleted geopoints. Is this correct? If so am I right in saying I need to delete the geo point and the object referencing it?



Hi Mike,

  • there are no way to retrieve only count of geopoints, unfortunately.
  • Yes, this is correct. You should delete both point and data object referencing this point.
