Extracting Latitude and Longitude from a KML file using Alteryx

With Tableau’s instant geocoding, it is very easy to build visually rich interactive maps for fields that have a specified geographic role. For most of the developers, Geo Spatial data for geo mapping is big requirement. With Tableau 10.2, a new native spatial data connector was introduced. Tableau at this point (10.5) will not be able to represent Points and Lines and Polygons together. We may expect them in the near future. To show points and lines and polygons together, we need to extract the Latitude and Longitude.

 

Creating a KML spatial file using Google maps for Tableau

With Tableau’s instant geocoding, it is very easy to build visually rich interactive maps for fields that have a specified geographic role.

For most of the developers, Spatial data for geo mapping is big requirement. Spatial data sets offer something that regular fields on Tableau cannot offer. For example – Lines and Polygons. These cannot be automatically shown on Tableau with the support of Point Oder, Path Information and Polygon data.

With Tableau 10.2, a new native spatial data connector was introduced. Most of the developers had a big sigh of relief as it made their jobs a little easy. The Spatial connector can be used to access KPI files, ESRI Shape files, Map-Info tables and GeoJSON files.
