    Shape Files as Map Source?

    Gene Denny

      I'm completely new to the use of shape files, whether it be in Tableau or anywhere else, so I welcome all input.

       

      I've been using the information provided by Allan Walker to connect with some pretty solid WMS servers.  Since that time, I have been informed that our busing software (I'm in K-12 education) can provide shape files to me for school boundaries as well as the background map.  My question is, is it possible to use a shape file as the background map?  I'm guessing that some sort of file conversion would need to take place, if this is possible.
