Can you provide us with some sample data or a workbook? This sounds doable, but will be hard to tell without knowing the data or its structure
I'll work on putting together a sample, but if it helps, it would be the same as taking any of the USCB shapefiles (TIGER/Line® Shapefiles ) and joining in tableau with an excel document by joining the GEOIDs- the excel document would contain one row for each GEOID and have either 1 or 0 as entries in, for example, 4 columns labeled categories A-D.
Hi Caitlyn -
Do you just need to filter by one at a time? Or do you want to be able to select attributes from multiple columns and see the combination of where A is 1, B is 0, AND C is 3 at the same time?
If it's just to be able to see field at a time and quickly jump between, what about creating a parameter with the categories you want to toggle by and then creating a calculated field that checks if the selected category is 1 or 0. If you use the calculated field on the viz you could automatically filter or color encode based on whether or not the selected category is 0 or 1.
Quick example attached (in 10.5 - let me know if you need a different version). The parameter allows you to select an attribute field, the map then updates. The data is randomly assigned here, so don't expect any exciting pattern...
