This page describes a use case for implementing a combo overlay.

Use Case Description

In an area, the locations for a clinic, a school and a sports center are known. Which area is for all three locations within a one kilometer range?

For this we need to create three average grid overlays, one for each location. Each location needs to have an identifying attribute assigned to it. Then we need to combine these three overlays in a new combo overlay, linking all three average overlays with a logical formula.


As we want to indicate the and combine the area that is within the range of all three buildings, the formula for the use case, based on the operators table on the combo overlay page, looks like this:

MIN(A, B, C)

Where A, B and C are the average grid overlays.

How to

How to add a Combo Overlay with features:

  3. Add a Combo Overlay and select the Average overlays in each slot (A,B and C)
  4. Enter the formula in the Formula field
