This post I have created using Superstore data set.
To get map in Tableau, we can use any field with globe sign like this:
To draw map double click on this field, latitude and longitude will automatically come in row and column respectively.
Blue dots showing the center of all state in the country.
Let’s display some measure on this blue dots. Suppose we want to show Sales from each ship mode in each of the states then:
- 1. Select Pie chart in Marks type
- 2. Drag ship mode on to colors shelf
4 types of ship mode are shown with 4 colours at each of the states
- 3. Now drag Sales onto angle shelf
Now we can clearly see which shipping mode has more sales and which has less in all states.
- 4. Now suppose we want to know which state is more profitable then, drag the profite to size shelf
Now all pie charts are sized according to the profit, so visually only, one can say which state is more profitable and which is least.
