URL: http://GPUDB_IP_ADDRESS:GPUDB_PORT/filter/byradius

Calculates which objects from a table lie within a circle with the given radius and center point (i.e. circular NAI). The operation is synchronous, meaning that a response will not be returned until all the objects are fully available. The response payload provides the count of the resulting set. A new resultant set (view) which satisfies the input circular NAI restriction specification is also created if a input parameter view_name is passed in as part of the request.

For track data, all track points that lie within the circle plus one point on either side of the circle (if the track goes beyond the circle) will be included in the result.

Input Parameter Description

Name Type Description
table_name string Name of the table on which the filter by radius operation will be performed, in [schema_name.]table_name format, using standard name resolution rules. Must be an existing table.
view_name string If provided, then this will be the name of the view containing the results, in [schema_name.]view_name format, using standard name resolution rules and meeting table naming criteria. Must not be an already existing table or view. The default value is ''.
x_column_name string Name of the column to be used for the x-coordinate (the longitude) of the center.
x_center double Value of the longitude of the center. Must be within [-180.0, 180.0]. The minimum allowed value is -180. The maximum allowed value is 180.
y_column_name string Name of the column to be used for the y-coordinate-the latitude-of the center.
y_center double Value of the latitude of the center. Must be within [-90.0, 90.0]. The minimum allowed value is -90. The maximum allowed value is 90.
radius double The radius of the circle within which the search will be performed. Must be a non-zero positive value. It is in meters; so, for example, a value of '42000' means 42 km. The minimum allowed value is 0. The maximum allowed value is MAX_INT.
options map of string to strings

Optional parameters. The default value is an empty map ( {} ).

Supported Parameters (keys) Parameter Description

If true, a unique temporary table name will be generated in the sys_temp schema and used in place of input parameter view_name. This is always allowed even if the caller does not have permission to create tables. The generated name is returned in qualified_view_name. The default value is false. The supported values are:

  • true
  • false
collection_name [DEPRECATED--please specify the containing schema for the view as part of input parameter view_name and use /create/schema to create the schema if non-existent] Name of a schema which is to contain the newly created view. If the schema is non-existent, it will be automatically created.

Output Parameter Description

The GPUdb server embeds the endpoint response inside a standard response structure which contains status information and the actual response to the query. Here is a description of the various fields of the wrapper:

Name Type Description
status String 'OK' or 'ERROR'
message String Empty if success or an error message
data_type String 'filter_by_radius_response' or 'none' in case of an error
data String Empty string
data_str JSON or String

This embedded JSON represents the result of the /filter/byradius endpoint:

Name Type Description
count long The number of records passing the radius filter.
info map of string to strings

Additional information. The default value is an empty map ( {} ).

Possible Parameters (keys) Parameter Description
qualified_view_name The fully qualified name of the view (i.e. including the schema)

Empty string in case of an error.
