This looks like a great project. Is there any underlying data related to these center points that Tableau is connected to? From reading this, it sounds like a use case entirely built to interact with the points on a map rendered in Tableau unrelated to data. Maybe that's just my mis reading of the post though. If there is no underlying data, then you may want to investigate Mapbox's tools - Developers | Mapbox and API's as they might a better solution.
If there is underlying data and you have worked a bit on this in Tableau, could you post a sample workbook to share with the community?
Hi Patrick and thank you for your response.
You are correct-- I'm afraid I don't have any underlying data at this point: it's a project dependent on user-entered values.
Unfortunately, we know Tableau's not so good at that (filters: YES, parameters, YES: but point-and-click/user-enter-values: not so much).
I'll check out your recommendation (Thank You!) and see if it can solve all my woes
If not, maybe I'll bring this to the 2016 Conference and see what I can find?
That sounds great Michael. I have marked this 'assumed answered'. If you come to TC, please be sure to stop by the community area and say hi.

If Tableau isn't the right tool for this job, that's cool, too. I'm curious to see if any of you could help me crack this!
