How to create a Square Tile grid map in Tableau

These days Choropleth has gained popularity — specially tile grid map. In this article, we are going to create a square Choropleth map which has become very popular nowadays. These are maps, where areas are shaded according to a prearranged key, each shading or color type representing a range of values. In this version, the map areas are reduced to a uniform size and shape (typically a square) and the tiles are arranged to roughly approximate their real-world geographic locations. Don’t you think, this is a great idea as it allows for a smaller national map that still preserves the overall location & region and maximizes overall information?

With addressing and partitioning, you can define which dimensions in the view define the partition (scope) and which dimensions define the addressing (direction).Addressing and partitioning is a slightly confusing theory in Tableau. However, it is very important for a Tableau developer to understand the concept of addressing and partitioning in order to understand how all the calculations are performed in Tableau.
