Hi,

I am working on Kaggle crime category prediction problem. Here input variable of dataset are datetime, district, dayofweek, address and geo variables( Latitude and Longitude). I know feature engineering always help you to boost your model prediction power. Can you please suggest the methods to create new variable from latitude and longitude? I know, this will improve the power of model because as we go more granular compare to district it will predict the crime category more accurately.

Thanks,
Mukesh

One thing you can do is use K-means clustering method to develop the cluster.
