This tutorial is based on the same way of thinking which is used by ShapeToTab. Creating ShapeToTab results without using ShapeToTab lol. In other words it is very easy to do :)
We will be creating a map of shopping centre.
Place dimensions of your map into spreadsheet (Excel or any other).
2. Search for the map on your computer.
3. Type the dimensions and select fields consisting x and y.
Place the coordinates to the spreadsheet and delete the row with the dimensions. You have to add new column Order (order of the nodes in the polygons). Each polygon has unique id (shop column) so everything looks fine. Save the spreadsheet and go back to Tableau, click in upper menu Data => name of your spreadsheet => Refresh.
In other words it looks like results of ShapeToTab, there is unique id for each polygon, coordinates of each node and order of nodes.
2. Add the Order to the Path.
3. Add the Shop to the Detail.
Click on the Order and leave Include in Tooltip unchecked.
