Issue

How to combine data source-based latitude and longitude with generated latitude and longitude on a dual axis map.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

    Resolution

    1. Create a custom geocoding .CSV file that correlates all of the latitude/longitude coordinates with the required nomenclature. For more information, see Creating an Import File.
    2. Import the custom geocoding into Tableau Desktop. For more information, see Importing Custom Geocoding.
    3. Use the name-based recognition to set up a dual axis view exclusively based on generated latitude and longitude values. 

    Cause

    The ability to create a dual-axis map with both generated and data source-based latitude and longitude fields is not built into Tableau Desktop.
