Challenge #15: Warehouse Shipped Miles

Alteryx Partner
 
Meteor

Solution

Interesting first spatial challenge for me.

Tried in first approach to calculate the points in Formula Tools but it did not work well..

 

Anyone an idea why?

 

Then checked the spatial function "create point"....

The data type also matters. Using float and double will deliver different results (just very trivial difference)

Once I figured out I could change the Max number of miles to include a larger range I was getting the correct numbers and was golden!  

Made the mistake of not looking if other stores were shipping the same item and if they wanted requested or assigned. Two different things and important to client to determine pricing potentially.
