2 Screenshots


Use Spatial Join to find data in one marker layer that is nearby data from another marker layer.


This data function takes two sets of geographical coordinates and joins them based on a specified buffer distance (calculated via Haversine method). It is recommended to use identifier data with latitude and longitude coordinates, or use entire data tables as inputs.



Installing the data function

Follow the online guide available here to register a data function in Spotfire.


Configuring the data function

Each data function may require inputs from the Spotfire analysis and will return outputs to the Spotfire analysis. For each data function, these need to be configured once the data function is registered. To learn about how to configure data functions in Spotfire please view this video:
