    Background Image (Map) coordinate error

      Hi friends,

       

      I'm very new to Tableau and have come across a backgound image problem.

      What i'm trying to do is overlay store locations in the UK with the customers around the UK.

      What I have done is created a map on Tableau with the store locations shown (I have taken the Lon/Latitude from the corners and saved the image). I have then set the image as the background image using the coordinates.

      As a test I have re-entered the information to show the stores location expecting them to overlap but the there is a noticeable gap between the stores on the image and where Tableau has now placed them.

       

      Any suggestions as to resolve this issue would be very much appreciated.

       

      Thanks
