How can I use geo location for predictive modelling


While determining the house price I don't want to throw away geo location as feature. At least I want to see if there is correlation. Geo-location is more like categorical variable. Is there a way to make it useful feature

Which type of model(s) are you using in your analysis? Linear regression and decision tree models can work with categorical variables as well. – raghu – 2018-05-13T04:42:48.170



Why is it categorical? You can use the longitude / latitude numeric coordinates as two features.
