    Can I overlay specific geocoded locations (in the form of dots) on a polygonial map?

    Sewan Renold



      I have an esri shapefile, that was converted to be imported as a poligonial graphin Tableau. Thanx to Richard Leeke's Post here, I have created the map in Tableau.http://www.clearlyandsimply.com/clearly_and_simply/2012/03/create-your-own-filled-maps-in-tableau.html

      In order to create a map, I have created a polygon graph and the view looks like this, which is exactly what I wanted:


      However now I want to overlay locations as "dots" on the map to show if they are in earthquake zones.My issue is, that this is a polygon graph, and not a "map" in tableau.

      How can I overlay totally different longitude and latitude information for locations over my polygon map above?

      The standalone version based on another dataset looks like this:


      Now how can I combine this?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
