    Tableau 9.3 Custom Mapbox map not displaying correctly

    Eric Liong



      So I used QGIS to add the borders and the names of some Local Geographic Areas(LGAs) to a Mapbox map. After a bit of work everything looked pretty good in Mapbox. You can see the lines and the names of LGAs on the map. Fantastic!

      I added the map to Tableau 9.3 using the URL and when everything loaded up things didn't quite load right. The map and borders look fine but the LGA names don't appear except when you zoom way out and they're clipped out at that point. In mapbox the names appear correctly at all the zoom levels.


      Here's the URL for the mapbox map (https://api.mapbox.com/styles/v1/ericliong/cionaf5ih001xbxm514ivq9e8.html?title=true&access_token=pk.eyJ1IjoiZXJpY2xpb25nIiwiYSI6ImNpb2JsazV2YTA0YW12Ymx6dzZ3ZTljeXcifQ.1yD4CmuA8eWwkfM7C-U_Xw#11.133889695235489/53.50076335928051/-113.41712844393062/0)


      Any idea where's the disconnect between what I'm seeing in Mapbox and Tableau?


      Thanks for your help!

      Tableau =( Sad times

      O'Canada, Why don't the custom labels appear earlier?
