I am very new to Alteryx (and I don't have a lot of time).
I have a list of customers with both addresses and lat-lon coordinates. I need to do a lookup to find their Census Block Groups. I have downloaded the and installed the Census dataset from Alteryx. I used Allocate to build a dataset of the Block Group codes. Can anyone point me to a basic tutorial of how to combine my list of customer points with the shapefiles to do a look up of the block codes.
I may have just solved my own problem. I found a sample workflow under Help -> Sample Workflows -> Clean and Prepare Data -> Infer Zip Codes from Lat / Lon.
While the workflow doesn't do everything I need, it sets me up for getting the information I need. See the Dynamic Input Step. First, I pull in the GIS data with the data input step, then use a dyanmic input to do the lookup with my customer lat/lon and then pass the blockcode field.
