    Create link between two data sets of geographic data

    Dennis Stevens

      I'm working in Tableau public.


      I have a dataset of crime data with columns for latitude, longitude, and the police precinct where the crime took place.

      I have a second dataset of foreclosed properties that also has latitude and longitude. But not the police precincts that the first dataset has.


      I'm trying to create maps where I can compare crime vs foreclosure rates. However, there is no simple way to join the datasets. The only way I can think of is some function that find if two coordinates are within some distance of each other.


      Any ideas?
