Create spatial point

Asteroid

Probably an easy question, but how do I create a spatial point when the longitude and latitude description are in same field ("type": "Point", "coordinates").  Most exercises have had longitude and latitude in separate fields which seems how "Create Points" tool is set up to handle.

 

Thanks!

Hi,

You’ll need to separate the latitude and longitude into separate fields
first. Then use create points.

See this weeks challenge (I believe it’s 184) under the weekly challenges,
Alteryx academy. That should help

Cheers!

Normally @EstherB47 would be correct. But the format you are describing is the text format of a point spatial object in Alteryx. If it exactly follows the format as shown in my attached example, you can use a Select tool to change the data type to a spatial object.
