Tableau Desktop's geographic data tools allow you to perform robust analysis on your map views. In this 10-video course, learn how to work with geographic data in which Tableau recognizes location names or create maps from spatial files. Also, observe how to use a variety of tools to configure maps to suit your data. Begin by learning how to use the selection tools with map visualizations; create choropleth maps to depict ratio or aggregated data in Tableau Desktop; and examine the steps involved in creating maps by using spatial files and geodatabases. Discover how to create maps from shapefiles; create density heat maps; and work with background maps and setting default background maps in Tableau Desktop. Learn how to group existing locations together to create custom territories or regions; use Google Maps to quickly generate directions to the points identified in a map, and explore how to create map views by using Mapbox maps. Conclude the course by exploring the steps involved in blending two data sources and creating primary groups.
