banner1.pngVoronoi Tesselation and Delaunay Trianglulation both perform spatial calculations on a set of irregular points. Voronoi Cells (sometimes referred to as Thiessen Polygons in the GIS world) make up a Voronoi Tesselation, which is the partitioning of a plane into polygons based on a set of points, so that for each point there is a corresponding polygon where the area in the polygon is closer to the corresponding point than any other point. Delaunay Triangulation is when a set of irregular points are divided into triangles, so that no point in the set is inside the circumcircle of any triangle created from the points.

 

Both of these processes have a bunch of really neat spatial analysis applications. In this article, we will talk about their implementation in Alteryx.

Last Friday was a very busy day for several of us at Alteryx in the wake of the announcement that Microsoft and Revolution Analytics had agreed to have Microsoft acquire Revolution Analytics. In this post I won't go into the Alteryx angle of this story, other than to say we think this is a net positive. Instead, I wanted to provide a few words of appreciation for what Revolution Analytics has done for both R based technology and for their non-technology contributions to the R community since its creation (as REvolution Computing) in 2007.
