aerospike.GeoJSON — GeoJSON Class


Starting with version 3.7.0, the Aerospike server supports storing GeoJSON data. A Geo2DSphere index can be built on a bin which contains GeoJSON data, which allows queries for points inside any given shapes using:

It also enables queries for regions that contain a given point using:

On the client side, wrapping geospatial data in an instance of the aerospike.GeoJSON class enables serialization of the data into the correct type during a write operation, such as put().

When reading a record from the server, bins with geospatial data will be deserialized into a GeoJSON instance.


import aerospike
from aerospike import GeoJSON

config = { 'hosts': [ ('', 3000)]}
client = aerospike.client(config).connect()

client.index_geo2dsphere_create('test', 'pads', 'loc', 'pads_loc_geo')

# Create GeoJSON point using WGS84 coordinates.
latitude = 28.608389
longitude = -80.604333
loc = GeoJSON({'type': "Point",
                'coordinates': [longitude, latitude]})

# Expected output:
# {"type": "Point", "coordinates": [-80.604333, 28.608389]}

# Alternatively, create the GeoJSON point from a string
loc = aerospike.geojson('{"type": "Point", "coordinates": [-80.604333, 28.608389]}')

# Create and store a user record.
bins = {'pad_id': 1,
        'loc': loc}
client.put(('test', 'pads', 'launchpad1'), bins)

# Read the record.
(k, m, b) = client.get(('test', 'pads', 'launchpad1'))

# Expected output:
# {'pad_id': 1, 'loc': '{"type": "Point", "coordinates": [-80.604333, 28.608389]}'}

# Cleanup
client.remove(('test', 'pads', 'launchpad1'))


class aerospike.GeoJSON
class GeoJSON([geo_data])

Optionally initializes an object with a GeoJSON str or a dict of geospatial data.

See Example for usage.


Sets the geospatial data of the GeoJSON wrapper class.


geo_data (dict) – a dict representing the geospatial data.

unwrap() dict of geospatial data

Gets the geospatial data contained in the GeoJSON class.


a dict representing the geospatial data.


Sets the geospatial data of the GeoJSON wrapper class from a GeoJSON string.


raw_geo (str) – a GeoJSON string representation.

dumps() a GeoJSON string

Gets the geospatial data contained in the GeoJSON class as a GeoJSON string.


a GeoJSON str representing the geospatial data.

New in version 1.0.53.
