Using spatial data for prediction



How can i use latitude and longitude data in predictive modelling?


Hi sambid,

  1. You can use these as a numerical features in your feature space.
  2. Calculate the distance(haversine).
  3. Create the cluster of location. For example 30 states.

Please read from this link. You will get some sense of it.


By using cos,sin,tan longitude problem can be solved.try once , if not getting then let me know, i will explain you.
