The ability to integrate with Google Maps is pretty limited.
How exactly are you planning on interacting with this and displaying it within Tableau? If you're looking to calculate the driving distance between two points, you could use the Google Api for it - Google Maps Distance Matrix API | Google Developers
Why not just precalculate it and bring the results into Tableau?
Thanks Tom for your quick response.
I would like to use google WMS. But i notice google map engine is decommissioned 100s of LatLog So i feel its easier to plot using WMS and to calculate distance using google.
I am newbie to Tableau maps. I couldn't find good post GoogleMAP with Tableau with distance calculation.
Appreciate your help on this regards.
You still haven't explained how you'd like to utilize this in Tableau or
Unless you want to interactively click point A then click point B in
Tableau and calculate the directions on the fly, I can't think of another
If this is your use case above, I would look into creating a web
application which accepts parameters from Tableau and renders the google
map. Then you could embed in a web page object in a Tableau dashboard.
I'm guessing here though, it's really difficult to say without you
explaining your solution further.

Thank you for your answer but this is not an answer to the question, we need to use google maps as a map chart (to plot charts on) instead of openstreet map.
Any suggestions please?
