    Creating a filled map with more variables

    Katrin EFFER

      Hello everyone,


      I am new to Tableau and would like to create a map that answers the question if the world has become a freer place (in terms of political rights and civil liberties). To do that I want to display the Following:

      > Filled map with colour scheme according to Freedom score of the country in 2018

      > Another variable for each country that indicates if the country has become more or less free since 2008. One way would be a circle if it has become freer and a triangle if the country has become less free (countries that havent changed shall still be displayed in a colour, but dont need any other information). Another way might be a black (has become less free) or white (has become freer) circle. This is where I am stuck. The only way I have found so far is with text information, but there is surely a better way.

      The data file and tableau workbook are attached.


      Thanks so much for your help in advance,
