    Can Tableau derive county information from a list of US addresses?

    Nick D'Amato

      Hello,

          I am new to Tableau.   Tableau was suggested as a tool that would solve a particular mapping problem that I have.  That is, a way to aggregate point or address data by county.   However, after spending a week or so with the program and watching videos it has occurred to me that this is not the case unless you already have a field for county in the data.    Long story short,  I process large tables of discrete address data that I need to aggregate by county.  However, the county data is not in the tables.   I can geocode the addresses to points but I do not have an easy way to populate the county field so that they can be aggregated.   Can Tableau do this?

       

      Thanks,

      Ned
