codeNo code

This video shows Alteryx users how to use the Mapbox Search macro for Alteryx, powered by the Mapbox Geocoding API, to do batch geocoding operations:

  • Batch forward geocoding operations convert batches of location strings, like addresses or city names, into latitude/longitude coordinates.
  • Batch reverse geocoding operations convert batches of latitude/longitude coordinates into location names at granularity levels including country, region, postcode, district, place, locality, neighborhood, or street address.

Create a workflow

  • 0:31 - Add data (like a list of addresses) to your Alteryx workflow.
  • 0:47 - Download the Mapbox Search macro from the Alteryx gallery.

Use the macro

  • 1:06 - Insert the Mapbox Search macro to your Alteryx workflow.
  • 1:13 - Configure your workflow.
  • 1:41 - Add your Mapbox access token to the configuration.
  • 2:10 - Add Browse modules to see (and map) output data.
  • 2:28 - Run the workflow.

See macro results

  • 2:38 - See your output data.
  • 2:47 - See your output data rendered on a map.
  • 2:53 - See results in more detail, including accuracy and relevance scores.
  • 3:25 - See the longitude, latitude, and centroid of each result.
