Challenge #96: Who Stole my Latte?

12 - Quasar

Here's my solution:



I ran into a bit of trouble with the find nearest before I realized that I had parsed out a "-" in the longitude.

You should put the T-Mobile campus coordinates in the instructions, I had to go look online for them. Also, some of the image links are dead right now, so I had to selectively filter in order to view the images.


Great exercise in data parsing and prep though, fun challenge.

Wow! never attempted to use pictures in Alteryx before, However it was awesome to see it's possible, what else can we do with pictures in Alteryx?


On a side note, my IT department did not like me trying to download the picture as the thought it was a "Personal/Dating" website, OOPS!

Got the culprit.   Like several others, my work figured I was "Looking for love in all the wrong places"(dating web sites).  I tracked it downs by opening the possibles on my phone.  @JoeM: I gotta side with @tcroberts on this one.  I had to look at the spoilers to figure out what the "T-Mobile Campus" is.  For those of us outside the US, please put this location into the description or the start file.  Also where did you get the person's name?

I tried to send the blob output from the download tool to an Image tool, but got an error that the DownloadData Blob field is not a recognized image format. When I used the Blob convert tool instead, I found the guilty party!


Fun challenge!

6 - Meteoroid

This one was lots of fun! I was able to use REGEX in this one. Might try this one again and attempt to use regex to extract more data.

7 - Meteor

I've got a hard block on downloading image files through Alteryx, so I had to take a guess using the filename! I've not used the spatial data tools before, and they seem quite intuitive here.


This was also a good challenge for practising regex.
