TCAUG Recap | July 2019

Asteroid

On July 24, the Twin Cities Alteryx User Group gang rounded up in a cozy conference room provided by  D A T A   D R I V E  to discuss all things Alteryx (and a little Tableau) before heading over to a nearby saloon to wet our whistles! We had a honkin' tonkin' good time! ( Nashville, TN really rubbed off on me!)

 

What did we discuss at this Twin Cities Alteryx roundup? Well, glad you asked!

 

First, we heard from Luke Komiskey, founder of  D A T A   D R I V E, on how he helped a client locate business opportunities with Alteryx Geospatial tools. Thanks to Luke's efforts this client went from plotting pins on a physical map and doing guess work to clicking play on an Alteryx workflow and interacting with a Tableau visual! Some of the tools in his workflow included...

 

*Street Geocoder
*Spatial Object
*Reverse Geocoder Tool (requires separate install and uses lat & long to find closest addresses)
*Find Nearest
*Find Closest

Next, we heard from Aidan Bramel (@AidanBramel), one of our newest Alteryx User Group Leaders, about her experience at Nashville Inspire. Her highlight reel included favorite sessions, keynote events, and 2019.2 Alteryx updates, such as...

 

Designer

*Interactive search, filter, & sort in the data preview (results) bar

*Consolidated data source connection

*Updated maps

*Not 2019.2, but noteworthy input to output tool and vice versa conversations coming in the future

Server

*Balanced Workloads

Assisted Modeling

*creates models for you!

Woofta! We learned a lot! And last (but not least) we had special guest appearance from the one, the only, Mark Frisch ( @MarqueeCrew )! His gems of wisdom included a plug on how to use the Street Geocoder without purchasing TomTom data and a community plug on the Interactive Geospatial Training.
