You Can Now Add Geo-Point Datatype Into Product's Properties in Virto Commerce

Virto Commerce has recently added a new platform module that will allow its users to add Geo-point datatype into their product properties.

A geo-point is a single latitude/longitude point on the Earth’s surface. Geo-points can be used to calculate distance from a point, to determine whether a point falls within a bounding box or in aggregations.

With this new Virto Commerce feature, the following changes and additions are available:

  • Ability to add a new product property as Geo-point
  • Elastic Search should index it as geo-point 
  • Search service should provide ability to find nearest products by geo-point
  • Search service should provide ability to order by distance from geo-point
