    " find documents that are within the bounding box." Should have been find documents based on a geospatial point where the document is defined by the bounding box.

    We have the hole EPSG registry dataset, http://epsg-registry.org/, in azure search for the purpose of letting users select a projection. The text search is awesome.

    What we are missing is the option to add simple polygons, this case a bounding box to a document, and be able to find documents that are within the bounding box.

    Rigth now we have them in sql next by seach also for geospatial look ups
