Workshops: Tableau

Learn to use the Tableau for data visualization.


Tableau has several products we will be utilizing at Tableau Public and will discuss Tableau Desktop. Tableau is a software company that makes a suite of software for creating and publishing data visualizations. Tableau is a fully-featured software that allow you to import data and apply a number of different transformations to that data, and eventually create a number of different visualizations. These include charts, graphs, plots, maps, etc.  Then, Tableau can compose multiple visualizations together and add interactive elements like filters and point-and-click functionality.
