Question

How to have different fields as labels for the start and end of a path chart (also called an origin-destination chart).

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Answer

After creating a label for the end of the path we can create a Dual Axis chart to create the second label.
  1. Add another copy of Latitude to the Rows shelf.
  2. Navigate to the Marks card for this additional Latitude field.
  3. Add a different field to label.
  4. Click the label button and alter the label to be shown at the end of the path instead of the start (the other Latitude field would contain the start label).
  5. Right click the right Latitude field on the rows shelf and select Dual axis.
