What do you mean by GRIP Mapping? Geo-Risk Information Platform?
I'm not familiar with the Schlumberger product, but you can use Tableau to connect to your own custom WMS.
If your map server doesn't support WMS you can connect to Tableau Mapping Service.

Thanks for the reply. I meant to write "grid" mapping. Grid maps are when the software interpolates data either in a 2D or 3D environment. See slide 21 in the following presentation.
I hope that helps.
Okay, so full disclosure I am not a geo-spatial specialist or cartographer. Just a map enthusiast.
Best place to start, clarification. What exactly do you want to map? We can do some amazing things with Mapping in Tableau. I want to send you in the right direction.
So, the term 'grid mapping' is pretty hot right now, as it's a popular form for showing election data. (I think this is what you are referring to).
Here is an blog post about the process in Tableau: How to Make Tile Grid Maps in Tableau | Tableau Software
In fact, I did an electoral college cartogram (variation on a grid map) in my own public account a few weeks ago: Tableau Public
However, what I see on the slide (slide 21 specifically) looks to be a standard projection map with a heat map overlay and some coordinate grid lines displayed.
So, yes elaborate on what you want to do and I can give you the right resources, direction etc..
Thanks for the reply.
It's getting close to what I'm looking for. The tiles are based on actual data points. What I'm looking for is whether or not Tableau can interpolate between 2 data points. So for example if the value at a position (x1,y1) = 10 and the value at position (x2,y2) = 20, I would like the program to map in interpolate between those 2 points.
So if you look at slide 21 on the link again, you will notice that the shading does not correspond to actual data points. Generally an algorithm is required to generate the interpolation.
Hope that explains what we are trying to do more clearly.
