Any guidance for fullstack app is much appreciated

Hey everyone, perhaps someone with experience can help shed a little light on this challenge for myself. Maybe someone can learn something, too! I want to create a REST API in Node & Postgres, with a React frontend that has multiple points (perhaps pinging the google maps API?) and stores them in columns with lat & long to display on a map on the frontend. I think a base project like this would be cool for a bunch of future projects and directions.

Edit: then maybe after build it with Apollo/GraphQL, etc.


Seems like the tool I am going to dig into since I am using Postgres is probably PostGIS which has specific data types for longitude and latitude. If anyone has experience with this I would love any kind of input.
