Find Nearest locates the geometries also known as points of interest that are nearest to a given location.

Table 1. Find Nearest Input
Field Name Description
Search Table Allows you to search a named table.
Named table Specifies a named table to search from the repository. Click the browse button and select a named table.
Search by Allows you select your search preference. The preference you select here drive the settings on the Settings tab.
Straight Line Distance Specifies a nearest point of interest in a straight line distance (a crow fly length). The distance that is calculated using this method may or may not be travelable by road. In a straight line calculation, you get settings related to the shortest distance between an input geometry and the output geometry or the shortest distance between two closest edges. See Settings page for more details.
Route Network Distance Specifies a nearest point of interest in a network area. In this calculation, you can set the limits for the required route and select one or more routing options to obtain a required output. See Settings page for more details.
Input Geometry Allows you to specify the input as either the name of an existing geometry field or create a point from a pair. The Geometry and X/Y fields are mutually exclusive (you must choose one or the other).
Geometry Specifies the geometry field that is provided by previous stages.
Longitude/Latitude (X/Y) Specifies the Longitude (X) and Latitude (Y) fields that are provided by previous stages. The drop-down lists contain all the fields of type string and numeric.
Coordinate System Specifies the coordinate system. This options is enabled when you have selected Longitude/ Latitude option above. Click the browse button to select the coordinate system. The pop up that appears upon clicking the browse button contain a list of coordinate code and names. By default, the coordinate system is set to WGS84. If required, change the coordinate system to match the input X and Y fields.
