This is a great pathfinder for accessing the Mapbox Surface API which can currently return elevation data for some lon lats:
Now for an extremely naive entry level question about the web connector - I have not been following closely up to now:
Can the web connector receive data from another data source or sheet in Tableau?
That is to say, if I have a sheet containing lon/lats, can I send these over to the web connector as input data, rather than manually inputting start and end locations like in your demonstrator?
Samuel - my understanding of this is currently no.
The WDC by default is brought in as an extract and not live data. For this to work that would have to change.
There may be a clever way around using Dashboard actions, but I have not been able to figure that one out yet
