Determine feature dimensions

Asking questions of our data often means taking measurements. You may need to measure the size of an individual feature. Find the dimensions of features such as the height of a building, the slope of a bike path, the volume of a lake, or the length of a river. Or, you might want to know the spatial fingerprint of a complete set of features.

Summarise data within a location

Identify the distribution of features at a location. For example, determine the total number of schools within a city or the number of rivers within ten miles of a pipeline. And, see how many customers live within five miles of your store.
