    Faster way to a refresh a shapefile extract

    Meghan Tighe

      I am using Tableau 10.5.2 on a Mac.


      I have a data source that joins a custom shapefile (.shp) to a redshift table. The join is a one-to-many relationship and the join happens in Tableau. The shape file maps states to custom regions, which are defined as groups of states. The redshift table has about 100K rows and 20 columns. When I try to refresh the extract for this data source, it takes over an hour and I have to shut down all of the other applications on my computer to get it to finish. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on a way to expedite this extract?
