Hi Tableau Lovers,
I would like to know if I could add background images to my map which is created with shapefile (*.shp) ?
When I try to do so, I can creat my polyline with .shp and show it on the map but can not show background image. I am wondering If I could do that.
By the way, at very first I have tried to convert autocad file (*.dwg) to .shp file and some of the files were converted correctly (Polyline.shp and not Polygon.shp), so I have tried to use the Polyline.shp to draw a map. Thank you for help!
Note: I can not share any file because of confidential issues.
The article below document how to build a view based on a custom background map and custom shapes on Tableau Desktop.
Additionally, I include the online help article about how to use background images in your views.
Hope this helps
