Thank you Allan Walker for sharing your information! I have been reading your map instructions and have learned quite many new things and alternative solutions.

Hi Raviteja,

Find Ville's map on the left, and my pass at it on the right.  Nothing fancy Ravi, and I am sure there are better ways of doing this.  I don't like using filled maps, but since Ville already had, that's what i used (I just duplicated his work).

The thing to look at is the Calculated Fields (I prefix using "CF - ") if you are beginning to use Tableau.  Your next learning exercise would probably be Dashboard filters.  They are useful.

Best Regards,

Allan

y do u need action(state). how did u create it?

• ###### 8. Re: Mapping,Polygon Mapping

Ravi, there are six null values in the dataset against Tableau's geocoding, and I couldn't be bothered to fix them up manually... hence the action [state] filter

Hi Allan,

Is it possible to create something similar to the graph which is there in excel sheet.? and how to create x-axis like variable shown in grapgh?

Thanks,

Hi Ravi,

This isn't a mapping question...you would probably get a better answer in a different forum section
