Have you used BigQuery’s new Geospatial capabilities? Have you exported them on Data Studio?Lak Lakshmanan, Data Analytics & AI @ Google Cloud, is showing how you can do it in his articleSource: @trolliYou can use BigQuery Sandbox (it’s free) and Data Studio (free product). Awesome, right?
When I was talking about BigQuery, I always had three people in mind: Felipe, Jordan and Lak.The first two are no longer in the team that works with BigQuery. But Lac is. And does an amazing job of writing articles, making videos that you can watch live or on-demand from Cloud OnAir events and, of course, training courses in Coursera and PluralSight.From last week I will have in mind another person. Our @antoine.castex, core team member of the France Community Group at C2C.His way of approaching BigQuery and explaining it with such simplicity is truly amazing. In his article, he has a very good transmission capability.It's a 7 minute investment to read. @Content.Sabina we must have him on the panel and talk. @JBranham maybe we can have a 10 minutes video from experts like himhttps://beautytmr.com/please-bigquery-can-you-accelerate-my-answers-and-be-cheaper-d642d2227c33 Source: Antoine Castex’s article on Beauty Tomorrow Publication, Medium
Hi Community, I wondering if someone have the experience implementing Data CI/CD pipelines from SalesForce and other DW flavors to BigQuery, managing versioning, deltas and dynamics pivoting tables, schema updates using GCP tools services (including Dataform). Thanks in advance
C2C is doing an event along with MediaAgility on How How MediaAgility is Partnering with Google Cloud and Looker to Help Businesses Build a BI Platform.You will get a chance to explore how MediaAgility supports analysis of critical KPIs—such as revenue growth, asset utilization, and overheads—when you attend the upcoming C2C Deep Dive with Shashi Ranjan, lead consultant and data architect. For companies relying on traditional ERP data, access restrictions and the need for manual interventions slow down analytics performance. Using Google Cloud and Looker, Ranjan and his team implemented a sustainable, centralized data and BI platform. Now, seamlessly integrated analytics are helping to identify new opportunities. RSVP here and make the most of this event.
New enhancements to Data Studio, including support for choropleth maps of BigQuery GEOGRAPHY polygons, so you can easily visualize BigQuery GIS data in a Google Maps-based interface.Ready to try it out for yourself? Check out this step-by-step walkthrough of visualizing BigQuery polygons in Data Studio. Explore the BigQuery Public Datasets or try it with your own data. If your geospatial data isn’t already in BigQuery, you might want to learn more about BigQuery GIS or loading geospatial data into BigQuery using FME.https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/data-analytics/geospatial-insights-bigquery-gis-and-data-studio-choroplethGoogle Cloud BlogI have used BigQuery and Data Studio a lot of times. But I have never used BigQuey GIS. It is quit tempting to start fooling around on the weekend! What do you think?
@OttoSchell welcome to C2C! I’m curious, when you, as the expert, don’t know the answer who do you go to or where do you turn? Feel free to @ people and/or invite others to the community and conversation or share resources that would be helpful to the entire group. Look forward to hearing your responses!
Google Cloud’s databases and analytics products such as BigQuery, Dataflow, Pub/Sub and Firestore brought Theta Labs unlimited scale and performance, allowing them to: Analyze streaming viewership data for real-time for analytics Forecast how many concurrent users to support during livestream events Predict reputation scores for thousands of edge nodes and address bad actors or underperformance Create the listener/subscriber for the topic the ETL pipeline publishes and ingest into BigQuery tables running fast queries Isn’t it an inspiring work? What do you think?
Today, I read this article about Looker: https://cloud.google.com/blog/topics/training-certifications/how-to-use-looker-on-google-cloud-for-data-governanceThe truth is that I haven’t used it, yet. Instead, I have worked with Dataprep for cleaning data and Data Studio for dashboards.Has anyone used it? Let me know what you think about this. And also, if anyone has used Looker and Dataprep to compare them, this would be even better!
