Point Data Type

Hi Forest,

We intend to use the map smart view and to do so we want to use our ‘location’ field which is a Point type in MySQL. The details of the field are below. Forest does not seem to recognize this particular data type. Is there a way around this? Thank you.

Hello @Arda_Yurdakul !
Can you try using the Geometry datatype in your model declaration ? :pray:
I’m not sure this will work, if it doesn’t I’ll push a request to support these datatypes to our product team.

Hey @Nicolas_Sailly !
I did try that but the values come up empty unfortunately. I also tried GEOMETRY(‘POINT’) but Forest didn’t serialize that. Thank you

I’m afraid we don’t support it yet then, I’ll push your request right away :slight_smile:
