    Radial, X , Y - Who Define Values

    Karthikeyan Masialamani

      All,

       

      I have downloaded around 7-10 tableau workbooks from the tableau public and navigated all the sheets/properties. While Viewing the data, I can see Radial, X, Y and it is used (in most cases) as AVG(X), AVG(Y) either in column or Row.

       

      The numbers for Radail, X & Y are something like 0.12, 0.34, 0.123.

       

      My questions are

       

      1) Do we get these number in the requirements?

       

      2) Do we need to generate these numbers based on the report? If yes, what is the steps to generate the values for X, Y and Radial

       

      3) I have also seen PathID (for Line), again how to generate these numbers?

       

      4) In all their reports, have they created these numbers ?

       

      5) Say for example, I want to show my report in circular format, how to define the numbers for X,Y and PathID ? is it based on Circle size?

       

      I am totally blur on this area, some useful tips/help would really clear my vision.

       

      I looked into the below report in my tableau desktop, and the data used in this report is attached here.
