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…

What’s New in Atlas Charts: Easy Organization-Wide Sharing
We’re excited to announce improvements to sharing dashboards in MongoDB Atlas Charts . Data visualization is a powerful tool for discovering insights, and sharing visualizations across your team helps amplify those insights to propel businesses forward. With organization-wide sharing in Atlas Charts, we’re making it even easier to share the insights you discover from your application data across your entire organization. Sharing dashboards Atlas Charts has always made it possible to share visualizations with either individual members or everyone inside your Atlas project. Assuming a user had access to a given data source in Atlas, adding a user to a Charts project was effectively a one-click process. However, many teams do not broadly share database access unless an individual specifically needs it. And, if you want to share data with many members of your team, provisioning users one by one is tedious. Once users are in a Charts project, however, sharing a dashboard with everyone inside the project becomes relatively easy — you can invite all users in your project to view your dashboard with a single action. There are probably scenarios in which some members of your organization have Atlas access and others do not. In this case, if your team has enabled Federated Authentication and uses a third-party authentication provider, such as Google or Okta, Charts now makes it simple to turn on sharing dashboards across your entire organization. Granting access This approach makes sharing company-wide information quick and easy. For example, you can keep employees aware of product or platform growth or other key business metrics. Any members of your organization can be granted access to view these dashboards with a single click, as shown in Figure 1. Figure 1: A look at a dashboard shared across an organization. Note that, with these changes to dashboard sharing, your ability to maintain the security of your data remains unchanged. New dashboard viewers still need at least viewer access to any data source behind the charts in a shared dashboard, thereby ensuring that your company's sensitive data remains private. Additionally, project owners can now manage data source access at a deployment level, which means they can give access to their clusters or federated database instances . This capability is in addition to the already available granular control of data source access at a collection level, which was introduced as part of recent improvements we made to data sources. You can read more about managing access to data sources in your organization in our documentation . We hope you find these sharing improvements valuable and start leveraging this capability to share additional insights across your organization. New to Atlas Charts?
