Column Distance

Palladian for KNIME version by palladian.ws; Philipp Katz, Klemens Muthmann, David Urbansky

This node allows to calculate the distance between two input columns easily. No need to create a complete distance matrix, but simply pick two inputs between which the distance measure is calculated. You can use arbitrary distance nodes, which work with a single input column (e.g. String Distances, Geo Distances, etc.).

Input Ports

Input table which contains the columns between which the distance should be calculated.
A configured distance for the first input column.
A configured distance for the second input column (must be of the same type as first distance).

Output Ports

Same as input table, but with appended column for distance.
