    Map to a Street ?

    jagam jaga win

      Given an address ( anywhere on the globle) 

      Can tableau generate goecodes and exactly point the location on the map ? Up to a street Level.

      If No are there any alternatives, probably connect to Google Maps. Does tableau provide any functionality to connect to any other APIs

      Or what other alternatives are available.

       

      If I provide the lat & longitude up to which level can I map the geocodes .. Upto a city level ??

       

      I have read about this article - Its a process for rendering OSM in Tableau using Map Service.

      http://theywalkedtogether.blogspot.in/2013/07/crowd-atlas-process-for-rendering.html

      In the same post they have mentioned the exact process is not detailed out and that there are errors while trying to install the binaries

      and related things.. Please comment

       

      If there are any sample workbooks with the mappings of lat&long could you please send me one

       

      Thanks in advance

          Hi Jaga,

           

          I was the author of the blog post.  I'd recommend you use the Linux version of osm2pgsql rather than the Windows binaries if you are importing planet-latest.osm.

           

          You can map to any co-ordinates with X,Y.  I recommend you use EPSG:4326 as the datum.

           

          Best Regards,
