    Number of points in custom regions of lat/long at specified timings

    yiqun chong

      Rather new Tableau user here. Currently on 9.1 with restrictions to updating.


      I need to create custom regions overlapping countries and oceans using lat/longs. Then, for a user specified time or time interval, I want to be able to know how many points (also lat/long points with timestamps) are in specified regions.

      Creating the regions was without difficulty, however the way I see it I would need to create regions such that Tableau recognizes it, like how it does for US states.

      Have been reading and googling for about a week now, and what I gather is that Mapbox is actually needed to achieve what I want.

      Is there any other way?

      If no, would Mapbox be the correct direction to look into?
