I am trying to fetch data from data.cityofnewyork.us with the Python client sodapy. It generally works as it should, but I just can't figure out how to perform spatial queries. For example, I would like to get the simplified geometry data by leveraging simplify(), but it doesn't return a geometry at all. How can I get this to work?
from sodapy import Socrata identifier_build = 'qjdb-bxqz' client_build = Socrata(domain, None) results_build = client_build.get(identifier_build,limit=5, select="CNSTRCT_YR,simplify(the_geom,0.01) AS the_geom", where ="FEAT_CODE==2100")
