      Hi all,

      I have to show the image of only one state in US and point ot location of stores using pins.tableau maps also show other state's districts etc.Can I therefore fill the corresponding state with a color to make it distinct

          Yes. I'll assume you're starting out with a state map fill.

           

          1. Place another instance of your Lat field on the Rows shelf. Notice 2 maps.
          2. Locate Marks shelf and click the drop down arrow to the right of the Marks title and select Multiple Mark Types.
          3. Using the arrows under Marks, change from All to Lat (2).
          4. Change the mark type to the shape you wish to use
          5. You will likely need to add fields to the level of detail shelf to get your specific locations
          6. Once the second map is looking as you want it to, click the drop down beside the second Lat field on the Rows shelf and choose Dual Axis (this merges the two maps into 1).

          If you need more detailed instructions, please search the forums on this topic. There are plenty of discussions on this.

           

          Hope this helps,

           

          Andy

            Thanks Andy,

            That worked like a charm

              Hi Andy,

               

              When I place another instance of your Lat field on my Rows shelf I lose my map and I get 2 top and bottom circle charts when I should see 2 maps.

              Note: All of these Lon and Lats come from my data, they are not generated.

               

              Any idea what is going wrong?

               

               

              Thanks
