Spatial join improvements
We’re making spatial joins more powerful to unlock new ways to explore your geospatial data. When first released, spatial joins could only be used between point and polygon geometries. Now, we’ve expanded support to other combinations: polygon/line, polygon/polygon, and line/line to allow for a more complete and advanced analysis of your data. In this example, a line/line spatial join is being used to intersect one dataset that has major CA highway networks (as lines) and a dataset that has fault lines (also lines). This helps us understand which highway networks are particularly susceptible to seismic activity, since they directly intersect a fault line. With a line/polygon join, this can also be visualized on a state or country map.
WKT support and GeoJSON conversion support
To enable even more users to perform spatial analysis in Tableau, we've added more WKT and GeoJSON support to Tableau. Easily translate WKT and GeoJSON text markup found in Excel and CSV data sources directly into usable spatial geometry in Tableau.
ISO-8601 calendar support improvements
We're expanding ISO-8601 support to more and more databases. This release we've added support for the DB2 connector.
