Compute distance between geospatial objects

This processor computes the geodesic distance between a geospatial column and another geospatial object.

You can compare a column with:

  • A fixed geopoint

  • A fixed geospatial object

  • Another geospatial column

The computation outputs a number of distance units (kilometers, miles) in another column.

In the case of a distance between two geometries, the distance is the shortest distance between these two.

The processor assumes that the data uses GPS coordinates, also known as WGS-84, SRID 4326 or EPSG:4326.

GeoJSON format is not supported with the SQL Engine when using PostgreSQL.
