Given that MongoDB is the back-end, it would be a strong feature to add 2D indexes to a type of field on a collection so that in Cloud Code, we could perform "near" or any other geospatial query.
It solved the issue for me. :)
Actually, thank you for this. This might just do this trick. i didn't realize i could just call ensureIndex and do near queries as is. i was looking through the documentation for Cloud Code and didn't find anything on that so I assumed it wasn't supported.
You're welcome! Just make sure to also check the first comment at the very bottom because there is a small error in the code which is a little tricky to find as it doesn't raise an error in the Test Harness. Good Luck!
