GeoProject() is used in scripts and chart expressions to apply a projection to a geometry.
Return data type: string
|type||Projection type used in transforming the geometry of the map. This can take one of two values: 'unit', (default), which results in a 1:1 projection, or 'mercator', which uses the web Mercator projection.|
|field_name||A field or expression referring to a field containing the geometry to be represented. This could be either a point (or set of points) giving longitude and latitude, or an area.|
Tip noteDo not use the Group by clause in the data load editor with this and other non-aggregating geospatial functions, because this will cause an error on load.
In a Load statement:GeoProject('mercator',Area) as GetProject
|The Mercator projection is applied to the geometry loaded as Area, and the result is stored as GetProject.|
