i want to run a search with Alglia for full text search in my dataset. I'want to be able to search and filter all objects. especially i want to use 'aroundRadius', 

'aroundRadius' and also 'aroundLatLng' should return all the data without caring about the location.
 The filed _geoloc with lat and lng also exist in my data - of course - see above. 


      filters: filters,
      aroundLatLng: location,
      aroundRadius: radius

    }).then((data) => {      

Do I need any special configuration for Indice or the syntax is wrong? I followed this data-man-pages


Filter Results Around a Location

    "objectID": "3797",
    "name": "John F Kennedy Intl",
    "city": "New York",
    "country": "United States",
    "iata_code": "JFK",
    "_geoloc": {
      "lat": 40.639751,
      "lng": -73.778925
    "links_count": 911

To tell Algolia where each record is located, we need to have the latitude and longitude stored in the _geoloc attribute.
You can download the dataset here. Have look at how to import it in Algolia here.

Initialize the client#
from algoliasearch.search_client import SearchClient

client = SearchClient.create('YourApplicationID', 'YourAdminAPIKey')
index = client.init_index('your_index_name')

Configure Index Settings#
Even if we want to sort by distance to a location we need the textual relevance to be good in case refine the search with a query.

For that lets configure the index.

  searchableAttributes: [
  customRanking: [

Searchable attributes#
We’re going to search in our 4 textual attributes: name, city, country and iata_code.......
