The default maps in Tableau are just fine but sometimes you need to kick up the flamboyancy factor in your visuals. Integrating maps from Mapbox with Tableau is the perfect way to add some Liberace flash to your development game.
Mapbox is an open source mapping platform for custom designed maps. By creating an account with Mapbox, you can either design your own maps on the platform or use their preset maps, which are all more impressive than the out of the box option in Tableau.
All you need to do is enter your generated API token (provided by Mapbox) into Tableau’s Map Services interface and you’ll have access to some pretty impressive mapping options.
