Removing Map-Junk from Tableau Maps

In this demo I show you how to create custom multi-layer maps in Tableau. This helps when you don't want Tableau to draw other geometries besides what is in your data, but you still want to use bubbles or other shapes. Enjoy!

Build a Base Map

  1. Make a filled map
  2. Remove all map layers
  3. Change colors accordingly

Add 2nd Layer

  1. Duplicate lat/lon
  2. Change to dual axis
  3. Change 2nd mark type to circle
  4. Change colors, size, etc.
