    how to create a custom map data layer?

    . stud_student

      Hi All,

        I recently purchased the tableau desktop software. Tableau rocks!!


        I have some numeric statistics  for each of the states in the US. What I want to do is I want to plot them on the United states map - but I want to shade the states based on the value of the statistic (kind of like the other "map data layers" - such as population etc.,) - which makes for a killer presentation / image.


          Merely having the circles of different sizes doesn't make it compelling :(  How do I do this?
