See the attached - I changed your NEED to get to color directly
then changed the LON2 tile to line and placed need onto color and made it a line
IF [% Inbound] <= .4 THEN "Red"
ELSEIF [% Inbound] <= .50 THEN "Yellow"
Will this work for you
Please let me know

No, unfortunately, it doesn't. For instance, is this freight going from Washington to Texas or from Texas to Washington?
This is included in the Origin/Destination (O/D) Dimension but I've not found a food way to incorporate it.
However, if I use Need to determine color, I might be able to color-code the terminal dots based on Origin/Destination.
1- I'm not certain what you want - I looked at your viz and could not determine direction - and to really understand what you were trying to achieve
2 - If you go to the LON2 tab and make the chat type dots That's exactly what it will do - When I first made the chat the terminals showed up in color - I thought you wanted the lines in color
Sorry for the confusion. The post mentions route direction as does my first paragraph, so I assumed we were on the same page.
Tableau's instructions on maps involve making two rows that represent a line between an origin and destination. So here's Tableau's suggested data setup:
Origin-Destination Station Path ID Latitude Longitude Origin BT-01 BT-01_BT-01 47.61841 -122.35101 Destination BT-01 BT-01_BT-01 47.61841 -122.35101
And here is mine:
O/D Terminal Lane ID Destination 642 859-642 Origin 859 859-642 Destination 859 890-859 Origin 890 890-859
I then map the Terminal ID to a Lat/Lon.
So, my primary goal is not to color the lines (I can do that) but instead to show which direction freight is traveling (from Origin Terminal to Destination Terminal)
My Secondary goal is to have the dual axis show favorable terminals through Red/Yellow/Green coding.
Does that help clarify?
