    How to fill areas defined by 3-digit zip codes

    Chris Wells

      I understand that Tableau does not natively support 3-digit zip codes. But is there a simple way to plot 3-digit zip code areas from the 5-digit zip codes that make them up? (And that Tableau easily plots)

       

      I have a student who has data aggregated to the 3-digit zip code level; she would like to plot these areas. I am thinking there might be a way to create a group of 5-digit zip codes that correspond to each 3-digital zip code, but I have not been able to figure it out.
