2433853 - Using geospatial analysis / location data with SAP Analytics Cloud


How can a user enable the usage of a location dimension for geo-spatial analysis?


  • SAP Analytics Cloud


The ability to use geospatial (geoenrichment / geocoding / mapping / GIS) analysis features (geo map widgets in a story) is enabled by only two of the following model creation options:

  1. Main Menu >> Create >> Model >> Import a file from your computer.
    Pre-requisites require that your file include latitude / longitude coordinates or region data.
  2. Main Menu >> Create >> Model >> Use a datasource >> Live Data connection (to a HANA database).
    Pre-requisites require that your live data connection model will be based on a HANA calculation view that is enriched with latitude / longitude coordinates.

Note: Geospatial analysis starting with a blank model (Main Menu >> Create >> Model >> Start with a blank model) or appending location information to a geo-enabled dimension is not supported at this time. Please provide your support on enhancing this feature by voting and commenting on the idea: Extend functionality of Geo mapping capability.

The Create Location By Coordinate or Create Location By Region method is displayed below (Option 1).
