    Custom regions of counties in Tableau

    Rikesh Nana

      Hello all,

       

      Thank you for reading!

       

      I have:

       

      A dataset with data that is divided into two regions of Kentucky. I also have a cross walk detaiilng which counties in Kentucky go into which of the two regions.

       

      I wish to make a map that:

       

      Displays a map of the state of Kentucky with both of the regions, and a table underneath that displays a dataset with certain characteristics (i.e. how many people live in the region). When you click on a region, it should filter the data to only display the data pertaining to that region. Could someone point me to a resource that would show me how to do this? Unfortunately, I'm running Tableau 8.

       

      Thanks again for your help.

       

      Best,

       

      Rikesh

          Hi

          Tableau has ;limited mapping capability including the ability to create a custom region from lower level geo fields

           

          More recent versions have this capability

           

           

          8 does not have that feature

           

          That doesn't solve your problem - sorry

          Jim
