In this section we provide a set of examples that showcase how to leverage the functions of our Analytics Toolbox to unlock advanced spatial analyses in your data warehouse platform. They cover a broad range of use cases with methods for data transformations, enrichment, spatial indexing in Quadkey and H3, statistics, clustering, spatial data science methods and more.
The Analytics Toolbox can be leveraged from the SQL Query editor in Builder, your data warehouse console, or in SQL and Python Notebooks using the SQL clients provided by the different cloud platforms.
We provide a set of examples that showcase how to easily create tilesets based on spatial indexes allowing you to process and visualize very large spatial datasets stored in Snowflake. You should use this procedure if you have a dataset that contains a column with a spatial index identifier instead of a geometry and you want to visualize it at an appropriate zoom level.
We are going to demonstrate how fast and easy it is to make a visualization of a Quadkey grid to identify the concentration of Starbucks locations in the US.
In this example we are going to showcase how to use the Minkowski distance to evaluate cannibalization across Starbucks stores in Los Ángeles, assuming that the ratio of cannibalization depends on the nearby store sizes and the distance to them.
In this example we will showcase how easily we can compute all the paths that interconnect the main four US airports using the Analytics Toolbox.
In this example we are going to use points clustering to analyze where to locate 10 new supplier offices in US so they can best serve all Starbucks locations.
Voronoi diagrams are a very useful tool to build influence regions from a set of points and the Analytics Toolbox provides a convenient function to build them. An example application of these diagrams is the calculation of the coverage areas of a series of Starbucks stores. In the following query we are going to calculate these influence areas in Atlanta.
