Modules and Stages / Location Intelligence Module |

The Location Intelligence Module offers the following capabilities:

- Map-based data visualization and analysis
- Feature querying and searching
- Geometry operations including measurements (area, perimeter, length), predicates (within, contains, intersects), geometry manipulation (union, buffer, intersection) and coordinate transformation

Some of the things these capabilities enable you to do are:

- Determine which sites are nearest to a given location
- Determine whether or not a location resides in a given area
- Query a spatial database using spatial functions as well as standard SQL functions
- Perform a variety of calculations on spatial data, such as determining the area of a polygon, determining the distance between two points, or measuring the perimeter of an area
- Return a geometry object that represents the union of two input geometry objects
