Getting Started with GEO, CouchDB, and Node.js

Book Description

Getting location is easy. Mobile devices have GPS and standard APIs that quickly give developers access to coordinates. But what do you do with that data next? How should you store and query location data? Open formats like GeoJSON combined with data stores like CouchDB are making development of location based applications easier then ever before. Using NodeJS and CouchDB you can store location data, and perform complex queries on that data quickly.
