Utilizes methods of the 'PyMongo' 'Python' library to initialize, insert and query 'GeoJson' data (see < https://api.mongodb.com/python/current/#> for more information on 'PyMongo'). Furthermore, it allows the user to validate 'GeoJson' objects and to use the console for 'MongoDB' (bulk) commands. The 'reticulate' package provides the 'R' interface to 'Python' modules, classes and functions.

I fixed a bug in the geoInsert method of the geomongo class (replaced file.exists() with dir.exists() for a folder of files). I added an ellipsis in mongodb_console() function to allow for additional parameters for the system() (unix) and shell() (windows) command line functions.
