    Regions / Provinces Resource

    Thomas Otto

      Hey guys,


      this is my first post in the community, I am happy to join and looking forward to it!


      For a start, does anyone know where I can find a list of all the regions / provinces which are distinguishable in the tableau default map? I have to add a value to every single region, and as the labeling differs from source to source, it would be great to have some kind of default list in tableau.


      Thanks in advance for your help!

          Hi Thomas,


          You can select the region field from the dimensions.

          1. Double click on the state

          2.Drag region into the colour shelf.

          3.Sales into the size.

          4. drag both sales and region into the labels.

          Now you can able to create a map region wise.

            Thanks Triveni for your fast reply!


            Unfortunately, my issue was not how to create this kind of map, but rather where and if I can find a list of all x-thousands regions embedded in the tableau default map. I know that I can simply let them be displayed on the map, but to transfer them using this method to my database would drive me nuts.


            Nonetheless, cheers!
