Geolocation Function

The Geolocation Node is used to determine the latitude and longitude of countries, states, cities, and ISO 2 & ISO 3 country codes. It can be used with Google Maps or with Y42' insights visualization, to display the data in the graphical representation of their distribution. Here’s a guide on how to add and set up a Geolocation Node

Note: In order to use the Model feature you already should have already imported data sources into Y42.

Adding the Geolocation Node to Your Model

  1. Select Model on the right of your window and click Add Model. Name your new Model and choose a privacy level.
  2. Create at least one input table by dragging & dropping the Input field into your data model structure. Choose a data table by clicking on it, then click Apply.
  3. Drag & drop a Geolocation Node close to the Input field.


Setting up your Geolocation Node

  • Click on the Geolocation Node to apply the settings. 


  • Create the Column Identifier.
  • Specify your columns and Geo Type.
  • Add additional conditions by clicking on Add condition for higher precision, the big + button below.
  • When you are done, press Save. 

Once you're done determining the latitude and longitude of countries, cities, and ISO 2 & ISO 3 country codes, you can either perform further transformations or, if you want to export the new data table, click Commit Model.
