How can I combine normal query with a geoquery

0 votes
I want to create a composite query that will consist of a normal query and a geoquery. Can I just say

Query q3 = QueryBuilder.compositeOperator(q1, Operator.AND, q2)

where q1 is a normal query and

q2 is a geoQuery?

Hello James,

There is no such method in which you can create a composite query for finding the data. Either you can make a query for geo specific or non geo specific and cannot mix both. You have to write two different query on Storage to find the data. Please let us know the use case so that we can suggest a better way to implement this in your app.

I have a collection of documents that are geotagged. I want to be able to retrieve the documents containing a particular key and  that are within a fixed distance from a reference location.
I have a collection of documents that are geotagged. For instance, records of accidents that are geotagged. I want to be able to select the accidents that happened on a certain day within a 10kilometres of a given point.
Hello James,
Its not possible to combine both query to find your document from Storage.
Ideal way is to apply one filter using API and do client side filtering for next level.
Also,  you can write custom code to combine the result for the same if you want to do it server side. You can find the json document first from storage service and then can filter the records further based on your key value criteria. You can flush back those filtered record to the client which will have target JSON docs based on your need. Please have a look on the below link and let us know if it helps.
