    Issue with assigning geographic roles to data created with Prep

    Anup Srikumar

      Hi.

       

      I created a data set with Tableau Prep which has 5 digit FIPS (County) code values for Virginia. I published the data set as a .hyper file onto the Tableau Server and was trying to create a map with the data....

       

      The issue that I noticed is that when I assign a Geographic role of County to the FIPS field, Tableau is not able to create the Latitude and Longitude values needed to map this data. This is not a problem when the data set is created using Tableau Desktop but only with Tableau Prep.

       

      Is there an existing solution (or) one in the works?
