## Challenge #228: Know Your Boundaries

5 - Atom

Very Good Challenge

and i tried to make it dynamic as much as i can

13 - Pulsar

Fun challenge! I don't feel like my solution is not the most efficient but it worked out. I need to practice spatial more often is the lesson I take away from this

Alteryx

Used Multi-Field Bin Tool to separate the states into two groups - one from the west side of the River, one from the east side of the River (not necessary works in all cases with bin tool, but in this case yes). Then via buffer tool we can create a polygon that approximates the River.

Second step is to get the intersected areas between the start & end polygon and the River. Then create a inverse intersection object between the above processed polygon and the River. Lastly, splitting the further processed polygon into the regions will get us the result.

Glad I could lean on @johnemery for this week 🙂 Time for a trip now that we know how far we're going!

First time using spatial tools, definitely took me A LOT of Mississippis.

My solution involves creating a two rectangular boundaries using the max/min X and Y-coordinates of the map and start/end points.

Looking forward to see the other solutions!

I only starting learning spatial objects yesterday and thought I would try out a challenge.

It works but I seem to have used a lot more tools and over-complicated it compared to others!

here the solution

Nice one for spatial practice
