Basic Map in Tableau
In this article, we will learn how to draw basic maps in a tableau worksheet to do further operations. For this first look into two terms :
- Tableau: Tableau is a very powerful data visualization tool that can be used by data analysts, scientists, statisticians, etc. to visualize the data and get a clear opinion based on the data analysis. Tableau is very famous as it can take in data and produce the required data visualization output in a very short time.
- Map: Map visualization is employed to research and display the geographically related data and present it within the sort of maps. This kind of data expression is clearer and more intuitive. We can visually see the distribution or proportion of knowledge in each region. It is convenient for everybody to mine deeper information and make better decisions.
Dataset used in the given examples is Dataset.
For this we have to follow some steps :
Open the Tableau tool and connect a dataset to it. Drag and drop the one sheet of the connected dataset. Click on sheet1 to open the tableau worksheet. On clicking Sheet1 you will get whole dataset attributes on the left side and a worksheet for work.
To draw a basic map you have to select a minimum of one attribute (a web attribute) by drag and drop then select the chart option as Map.
Example 1: This example will help you to draw a basic map in tableau. Here we take a web/geographical attribute and use it then apply the map by using the Show Me Option.
Example 2: This example is also drawn similar to the above example 1. Here we take a web/geographical attribute with a measured attribute then apply map by using the Show Me Option and by using marks of graph selection.
Example 3: This example is also drawn similar to above example 1 but drawn with different values and different features for better understandings.
