Work with geo-temporal data

This page documents an earlier version of InfluxDB. InfluxDB v2.5 is the latest stable version. View this page in the v2.5 documentation.

Use the Flux Geo package to filter geo-temporal data and group by geographic location or track.

The Geo package is experimental and subject to change at any time. By using it, you agree to the risks of experimental functions.

To work with geo-temporal data:

  1. Import the experimental/geo package.

    import "experimental/geo"
    
  2. Load geo-temporal data. See below for sample geo-temporal data.

  3. Do one or more of the following:


Sample data

Many of the examples in this section use a sampleGeoData variable that represents a sample set of geo-temporal data. The Bird Migration Sample Data provides sample geo-temporal data that meets the requirements of the Flux Geo package.

Load bird migration sample data

Use the sample.data() function to load the sample bird migration data:

import "influxdata/influxdb/sample"

sampleGeoData = sample.data(set: "birdMigration")

sample.data() downloads sample data each time you execute the query (~1.3 MB). If bandwidth is a concern, use the to() function to write the data to a bucket, and then query the bucket with from().
