Is there an easy way to add a map / map layer e.g. TomTom2016 Q2?

@Gregory  - at 15:46 in this video, we show how to select a map base layer. The TomTom base map is only included if you have purchased and downloaded TomTom data. If you do not have the data downloaded, then we recommend using the Carto base maps.

Hi Joe,

Video on Spatial Analytics is really cool!

I was following through the steps to create the workflow on my own. While doing so, I got struck in "Find Nearest" tool.


Dataset field in "Find Nearest" is empty without dataset. I have attached a screen print of the same.

May I request, you to advise how to proceed further.
