Issue

How to create a map with three levels of geography, for example: a filled map of States with a filled map of County and a symbol map of City.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

As a workaround, try one of the following:
  • Increase the transparency of the filled map so a background map is more visible.
  • Place a third level of geography on color, such as Cities colored by State.

Cause

The ability to create a map with more than two axes is not currently available in Tableau Desktop.
