Issue

When multiple data points are mapped to the same geographic location, marks are stacked so that only one mark is visible.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Use one of the following workarounds:

Option 1

Use different mark types for the marks mapped to the same coordinates.

Option 2

Adjust the size or transparency so that all marks are visible.

Cause

The ability to display separate marks mapped to the same geographic location is not built into the product.
