    Add more cities for mapping?

    Chris Carper

      Is there a way to easily add more cities to Tableau's mapping functionality?  Say, for instance, cities with more than 5,000 people?

          Hi Chris,

           

          If you're talking about Tableau's native database, then that's a feature request, and you'll want to post in the Ideas section.

           

          If you want to create it yourself, then get a list of all the cities that meet your criteria, then you can feed them into this batch geocode utility (1,000 at a time) and get all the lats/longs for them and paste them into an Excel file and feed them into Tableau that way. Shouldn't take much time.
