    Latitude and Longitude generated in tableau for Canada

    Anamika Jain

      I have latitude and longitude against each branch number in an excel file. In tableau I have grouped the branches by Province in tableau. When I want a map view, tableau uses the lat and long from my excel file and plots the branches as dots on the province in the map view. I am unable to get tableau to plot the province only instead of dots of branches. If i can get tableau to generate lat and long then I might be able to get province plotted on the map view. How do i get tableau to plot the province as opposed to only plotting the branches...? I want to have a view of only province plotted with the measures on it,.

          Hi

          I am confused about your data - does each record have the province identified? and when you brought the data into tableau was Province brought in with a GEO identifier?

           

          if so then just drag province to the canvas and let tableau generate the longs and lats
