Hi! I’ve been working with a lot of GeoJSON data in MongoDb - its been great, but, something I’ve come to dream of having is the ability to edit the GeoJSON data right in compass, but in a visualized way (not just the string representation of the data).
At first I was thinking I could build a tool that connects to my Atlas database, and reads/writes to my collection, but then I realized Compass already does most of that; it just doesnt have the visualization layer on top.
I’m imagining the ‘edit’ of a geospatial field, could open up a map, with the GeoJSON rendered on the map, and then its editable right from there via a new interface. (something that looks like a simplified version of felt.com or placemark.io). It would be great to help visualize and edit an entire collection, or just a single document.
So, a few questions came out of that thought:
- Does anyone know if theres a way to do this already?
- If its not possible already then is it possible for me to build a community plugin on-top of Compass to support that?
- If so, is there any documentation to help point me in the right direction for that? And if not, is there any suggested alternative way of handling this idea?
