    Performance issue at workbook with polygons

    Stefan Björn Irmscher



      I wanted to generate a visualization of the population distribution in Germany on community level. Since tableau does not have geoinformation on community level I extracted polygon shapes using QGIS. That worked pretty fine. And it was no problem to link the geoinformation to the population data in a workbook. However, the performance is really bad! It takes approx. 4 min to refresh data.

      I'm not sure if the big amount of data is the problem. I have finally approx. 2 mio rows of data.

      Maybe tableau is not a proper software to visualize the data. However, I wanted to have a interactive illustration of the data, since I wanted to connect it with other data..


      Thanks for your help!
