    Tableau mapping with coordinates

    Haijing Hao

      Hi Tableau experts and users,


      Recently, I do some research using Tableau mapping. I have coordinates of some locations. I enter those coordinates into the Tableau, such as following:



      LatitudelongitudeLocation Name
      42.36732-71.1049Harvard Sq
      42.36083-71.093Central Sq
      42.37337-71.1189Kendal Sq

      It works perfectly when I double click the Latitude, Longitude, and then drag the Location Name to the Label. But similar data structure for locations of Riyadh, Saudi do not work because the locations showed up in Romania. Is it because Tableau Map database problem? Please advise. Google Map shows those coordinates in the right location in Riyadh, Saudi.
