Building maps just got even easier in Tableau 10! We’ve added more postal codes, more administrative boundaries, and more cities. We’ve also enhanced our geographic-role detection logic that will help you go from data source to viz even faster!
More postal codes
You may remember we added postal codes for almost all of Europe in Tableau 9.3. Now, with Tableau 10, we’ve expanded our global coverage for postal data to include countries in Asia as well as Central and South America. The list of supported countries now includes: India, Singapore, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Costa Rica, and Taiwan. We’ve also updated the postal codes for Australia.

More administrative and city-level data
In Tableau 10, we've added new administrative divisions for several countries. Under the “county” geographic role, you can now geocode districts of Hong Kong, South Korean sigungu (metropolitan areas), and third-level administrative divisions of Taiwan made up of townships, districts and county-level cities. You can also geocode France's overseas territories.
In addition, we've updated county-level data in Ireland and Kenya, and added additional cities throughout Western Europe.
South Korean metropolitan areas consisting of –si, -gun, and –gu are now geocodable in Tableau 10.
Automatic detection of geographic data
If your data has column names that are commonly used for geographic data, Tableau 10 will automatically assign them the appropriate role. Tableau has always done this for English (for example, if you have a field called “City,” it will be assigned the geographic role of “city” when connecting to the data), but we’ve expanded this feature to also cover common terms in German, French, Portuguese and Spanish. That means ciudad, cidade, ville, and stadt will all be automatically detected as city geographic roles in Tableau 10.
Join the beta
These are just a few of the dozens and dozens of new features in Tableau 10. You can also build your own custom territories, then use those as your base analysis.
We have a timeline for getting Tableau 10 out the door, but we’d first like to get solid usage in beta and fix any bugs. We want your feedback as early as possible to catch any issues and ensure the new features are great.
If you haven’t yet, check out our beta program to learn more and sign up. The beta program is available for existing Tableau customers. Customers with an active maintenance license can upgrade for free when Tableau 10 is released.
