    Tableau Map Layers

    Ariema Singh


      I want to create a UK map which has major roads marked as the base layer (shape file). On top of that, I need population data by local authorities or city (excel file). And at the top most, I need to pin restaurants in each area (excel file with latitude longitude information).


      Any help will be highly appreciated.

          If you just need your roads data set as background, you can add that to a Mapbox base map and use that in Tableau.  You could also see if the built in streets and highways layer on the Tableau base map has enough detail for you:



          As for combining the two excel files, you might try joining the files together and using a dual axis map to show both files: Dual Axis Mapping - Many Ways


          Or, you might be able to just union them together and display without using the dual axis map.
