    Combining shapefiles with other data

    Rob Doyle

      First of all thanks to Joe Mako for his great post on how to take shapefiles and get them into Tableau (http://joemako.tumblr.com/post/3289363623/preprocess-shapefile-for-tableau-tutorial-video)


      I have used this technique to bring together a number of countries into a region (ie Europe and Asia).  This works really well.


      I then want to blend this data with data from a csv showing Region, Type of Product and sales value.


      My aim is to then add this to a dashboard allowing me to click on 3 images and filter the sales values on the map based on these regions.


      Is there any way to do this in Tableau?


      I seem to be (basically) struggling to get TypeofProduct to be a filterable element in the maps view.


      I have attached a demo workbook of where I have got up to.


      Any help the community could give would be greatly appreciated
