    Spatial Joins - Lat/Lon and a Shapefile - I don't have a Geometry variable to intersect

    Henry Wang

      Hi everyone,

       

      I'm using Tableau Desktop version 2018.2. I have an Excel file that contains "encounters" with Lat and Lon columns. I also have a shapefile that has polygons that contain neighborhood boundaries. I'd like to do a spatial merge like discussed here (Perform advanced spatial analysis with spatial join—now available in Tableau | Tableau Software ) however, my file with the Lat / Lon does not have a Geometry variable to "intersect" with the Geometry file in the shapefile. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

       

      Thank you,

       

      Henry
