## Tableau Essentials: Chart Types – Dual-Line Chart (Non-Synchronized)

## Tableau Essentials: Chart Types – Side-by-Side Circle View

## What I Did in September – TC14 Plus a Few Other Things

## Every Pitch of the 2014 MLB Season Visualized in Tableau

As a data geek, it’s hard not to be drawn in by a sport like Major League Baseball with such rich statistics readily available. I wasn’t very interested in the game until I discovered how simple it is to collect and analyze data on every...

## Tableau Essentials: Chart Types – Treemap

Treemaps are a relatively new feature to Tableau, first appearing in version 8.0.

## Tableau Tuesday: How to Create a Top 10 and All Others Report

## Tableau Essentials: Chart Types – Stacked Bar Chart

The stacked bar chart is great for adding another level of detail inside of a horizontal bar chart. You can do this by adding another dimension to your horizontal bar chart that will further divide the measure into sub-groups. The sub-groups are then color-coded on...

## Tableau Essentials: Chart Types – Horizontal Bar Chart
