    Calculate routing in Tableau

    Josh Price

      I have a shapefile of the rail network which I have converted to a CSV with LAT/LLONG data and the sequence for each plotted point (to use the line graph to draw a line between points).  I would like calculate miles between two points and have tableau follow the rail line.  Does Tableau have any type capability to project shortest routing?  Or is there a calculation I could do to produce this?

       

      I feel i could probably create a calculated field to calculate the distance between each LAT/LONG point manually through a route, but we're talking about 100s of points per route.
