    Aggregated geolocations

    Fikri Shihab

      Hi Tableau experts,

       

      I need to map lots of geolocation records of moving customers. The records show positions of customers from various different services and devices.  I was able to show these users and see the tracking paths of these users on the map over desired period. However, ever since I used tableau 10.x  the detail paths are no longer apparent on the map and it appears to me that the locations are aggregated; hence lots of missing points on the map and losing granularity.  I tried to play with shape size and duration but didn't seem to help.

       

      Any clue why is this penning? Any suggestions or advice on how to show a detail positions on the map without losing too much granularity?

       

      Many Thanks,

      Fikri

          Hi Fikri,

          Is it possible for you to share a packaged workbook (.twbx) that shows what you're working on? Seeing the data really can make it easier to determine what's happening. My thought in the meantime is that you could disaggregate the data or change it to a dimension form a measure ( Disaggregating Data) perhaps changes to how data was interpreted in 10.0 or another version just switched the default.
