Using Spark datasets in the Analytics API

The Analytics API API performs operations on data it retrieves from one or more Spark datasets. A Spark dataset is the equivalent to a data layer in a GeoSpock dataset that the Data Explorer uses. Your source input data is ingested into a GeoSpock dataset and during this process, a number of data layers are created. Each data layer contains a subset of your data, such as taxi pick up points, supermarket locations or ad requests.
