    I have a question about adding small cities to Tableau map

    Haijing Hao

      I have some geographic data of China. But not all the cities would be recognized by Tableau.

       

      One stupid and slow action I did: I manually enter all those small cities' latitude and longitude in the sheet where I would use those data. Yes, this works. But, if in another sheet I want to use those small city again, I have to manually enter those data again... There are more than 100 small cities in my data.

       

      Then another solution that I tried is: enter all those small cities' latitude and longitude in .csv file as regular Tableau map feature suggests, then import that .csv file. I did. But it doesn't recognize the small cities in my .csv file. I am confused because I do it exactly as a book, Tableau 9 Official Guide said so.

       

      Can anyone give me some advice for this Tableau map feature?

       

      I will highly appreciate.
