    Change the map image in dashboard on web dynamically?

    Michael Gao

      Hi Guru,

          I have a customer who wants to change the map background dynamically which means that dashboard end user can change the map image via some drop down list (e.g. Street map; Satellite map; altitude map; basic map etc). They integrate tableau with some GIS system and the GIS can provide such kind of different map layer (something like map box).

         I know that in Tableau Desktop, user (dashboard author) can change the map layer in the “map” menu, but after published to server, no map menu available to end users.  

         So is it impossible to do it within dashboard? If not, they can consider do it via jsp coding through Tableau API, but is it possible to do it via JSP / API?

       

      Thanks!
