    Congressional District and Chapter Mapping

    Walter Oliff

      Hello All!

      I am still new to Tableau and am trying to create a dual axis map where the underlying map is the congressional districts for the 115th Congress, and the overlying map is a point of where all our chapters are by zip code (I work for a non-profit).


      I have created a tableau map using Tiger Shape Files containing the congressional districts. Any advice on a better way to map congressional districts is also appreciated. I realized that in order for me to bring my chapter points by zip code on the map, I would have to create a join of some sort. I realized that the states in the shapefile were delineated with FP points and found a subsequent mapping online. I intend to use this as the join if I can't find a better option.


      I would like two things to happen:


      1. Once I create the dual axis map, I would like to be able to click on a congressional district containing chapters and have them all selected at once.

      2. If I click on a chapter point, the congressional district and all other chapter points in that district will be highlighted.


      Unfortunately, I'm getting stuck trying to map these points on the underlying congressional districts. I have attached the files for convenience. I tried attaching a twbx file, but after saving it as such, the mile jumps to over 138 mb.
