Key Features

  • Get acquainted with graph database systems and apply them in real-world use cases
  • Use Cypher query language, APOC and other Neo4j extensions to derive meaningful analysis from complex data sets.
  • A practical guide filled with ready to use examples on querying, graph processing and visualizing information to build smarter spatial applications.

Book Description

Neo4j is a graph database that allows traversing huge data with much ease. Starting with a brief introduction to graph theory, this book will show you the advantages of using graph databases along with data modeling techniques for graph databases. You’ll gain practical hands-on with commonly used and lesser known features of updating graph store with Neo4j’s cypher query language. Furthermore, you’ll also learn to create awesome procedures using APOC and extend Neo4j’s functionality enabling integration, algorithmic analysis and other advanced spatial operation capabilities on data.

Through the course of the book you will come across implementation examples on latest updates in Neo4j, such as in-graph indexes, scaling, performance improvements, visualization, data refactoring techniques,security enhancements and much more. Towards the end of the book, you’ll have gained skills to design and implement modern spatial applications from graph data to unravel business capabilities with the help of real-world use cases.
