# Spread Rotation & Spread Factor Parameters...???

Hi Everyone,

I'm relatively new to Tableau and can't figure out what is probably a simple question. I have a map with 100+ data points (plotted using unique longitude and latitude coordinates). I'm trying to apply a spread rotation, spread factor and jitter effect.

- The jitter effect works (Thank-you Timothy! - https://biztory.com/2015/11/16/tableau-tip-multiple-map-symbols-on-a-same-location/ )

However, I have no clue how to create a working spread rotation or spread factor.

I've reviewed the post by Norbert Maijoor here: Jittering (again) , however, he doesn't simplify it enough so I know where to enter steps 2, 3, 5 etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Cheers,

Fallyn-Nikole

Norbert Maijoor is probably the best person to assist or help here if you still are seeking assistance.  Let us know Fallyn Thompson.

Hello Fallyn,

As far as I can tell. Each of those steps in Norbert's post is a new calculation. As some of the steps created in steps 1-5 are used later in the view.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Byrne, Patrick

Thanks for the ping. I will review my post tomorrow once again and elaborate where needed.

Have a nice evening.

Hi Everyone,

Thank-you so much for your comments and your help. Tim Pritchard at Tableau was awesome and helped me out during a Tableau working session. His solution is in the workbook below. Hopefully this helps others with the same question!
