Max distance for _geoloc/$nearsphere

What is the unit for the $maxDistance parameter on geo based queries? I'm using the following math but I'm not sure if it's right:

metersToMiles = 0.000621371;

maxDistance = radiusInKilometers * 1000 * metersToMiles / 3963.192;

For example, for a radius of 15km the query body is the following:


any help?


When using the iOS library (or the REST API) specify maxDistance in miles. When using business logic, such as with a collection hook, the maxDistance is specified in radians. ( might be helpful)
Hi Michael! I'm using both collection hook and iOS Framework
Neto, are you using the REST API or this with business logic?
