The RandomLatitude transformer generates random latitude values for specified database columns. It is designed to support geographical data enhancements, particularly useful for applications requiring randomized but plausible geographical coordinates.


Name Description Default Required Supported DB types
column The name of the column to be affected Yes float4, float8, numeric
keep_null Indicates whether NULL values should be preserved false No -


The RandomLatitude transformer utilizes the faker library to produce random latitude values within the range of -90 to +90 degrees. This transformer can be applied to columns designated to store geographical latitude information, enhancing data sets with randomized latitude coordinates.

Example: Populate random latitude for the locations table

This example demonstrates configuring the RandomLatitude transformer to populate the latitude column in the locations table with random latitude values.

RandomLatitude transformer example
- schema: "public"
  name: "locations"
    - name: "RandomLatitude"
        column: "latitude"
        keep_null: false

With this configuration, the latitude column will be filled with random latitude values, replacing any existing non-NULL values. If keep_null is set to true, existing NULL values will be preserved.
