Viewing Single Regions in Maps

So consider the following Map in Tableau (using our favorite SuperStores DataSet)

Now what if I only wanted to see Texas on it's own? I can apply a filter for Texas and the map will look something like this:

But what if i wanted to see Texas and none of the surrounding states whatsoever? 

Something like this:

To do this, go to Map in the Menu Bar > Map Layers > Then literally untick all the map layers and then you are left with the above.

You can then prettify this as you wish, or maybe use a few as actions on your dashboards.

Hope you found this useful , if so be sure to keep an eye out for our latest blogs.
