Thank you thats great, can i create pin points on the map using a postcode instead of this ?
How did you do it, i want to do it by Clients Post code, but im un sure how to do this ?
Which country (or countries) does the postcode relate to?
Tableau currently has inbuilt postcode mapping for:
United States, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Australian post codes coming in Tableau 9
If they aren't mapped by default ,you will need to custom geo code.
These are useful introductory articles regarding mapping with postcodes (UK)
Maybe a useful source for you
Hope that helps
I looked at your spreadsheet.
You can double click on the LATITUDE.
Change from Avg(latitude) to Dimension.
Do the same for Longitude
This will automatically create a map with your points.
This Map Sheet can be added to a dashboard.
Make sure you select USE AS FILTER ON THE SHEET properties - the little triangle.
Note, We have issues ONLY when the data comes from Oracle and we are using Tableau 8.2 but otherwise this works... Tested in sql server and excel.
Also, if extracted oracle data, then the dynamically generated Filter action works.
email me if you have question!
