## Challenge #352: Circular Embedding

Alteryx

A solution to last week’s challenge can be found here.

To solve this week’s challenge, use Designer Desktop.

This challenge comes to us from @Dillon_Mathues  - thank you for your contribution!

As a child, would you draw a circle, make dots around the perimeter of the circle, and then connect all the dots to each other? Or perhaps did you play with the spirograph toy?

That's what we are going to do with this challenge. In business terms, it may relate to a computer network.

Your goal is to place all points of the network on the circumference of a circle, and then connect each point to the points described in the input file.

Step 1: Create a reference for the circle creation.
Step 2: Create a circle.
Step 3: Self join to create endpoints.
Step 4: Create an edge matrix.
Step 5: Add the original data.

Good luck challengers!

Can't imagine this is the best way but matches output and did have me thinking for a bit there!

The hardest thing to replicate was the novel points on the circle, however, I think I have a working solution though

Fun one! Had to remember my high school geometry for unit circle coordinates

Very interested by the responses! I loved this challenge - spatial problems are the best. My graphic surrounds the White House!
