2d geospatial indexing
We have now added geospatial indexing to the product. Our approach has been to make something simple but fast: 2d only, and effective for common real world use cases such as lat/long location searches.
Would love to get some feedback on features people would like to see, how its working, etc…

MongoDB Releases “Focus Mode” in Compass GUI
We’re excited to announce an improvement to the aggregation-building experience in MongoDB Compass. Compass already makes it easy to view and manage your MongoDB databases, and with the addition of Focus Mode you now have the option to dial in on specific stages within your aggregation pipeline. Overview MongoDB's Query API and Aggregation Pipelines enable easy retrieval and processing of data from collections. They also facilitate complex operations such as filtering, grouping, and transforming, making computation and analysis effortless. MongoDB Compass' intuitive interface simplifies the process of building aggregations by enabling developers to easily create, test, and refine aggregation pipelines, and the introduction of Focus Mode takes this a step further. When constructing pipelines, having to simultaneously view and consider multiple stages can make it challenging to analyze the impact of a specific stage, leading to increased cognitive load. Now, developers can toggle Focus Mode on stages, opening a view that focuses exclusively on the contents of the specific stage they are working on. This view can also be used to view sample input (before the aggregation stage is applied) and output (after the stage is applied) documents, aiding in the understanding, troubleshooting, and optimizing of the data pipeline. Developers can also switch between different stages by accessing a drop-down menu at the top of their screen. This makes identifying inefficiencies and optimizing performance easier, as well as providing deeper insights from the output documents for data-driven decision making. Focus Mode offers a streamlined and distraction-free environment for working with stages, improving the efficiency and precision of testing, debugging, and analyzing the impact of each stage on the data, ultimately simplifying the creation and management of pipelines. Conclusion The addition of Focus Mode is part of our continued refresh of the query and aggregation experience in Compass. These improvements are made possible thanks to the feedback of our developer community, so we encourage you to try out this new feature and let us know what you think!
