Data

Following the budget cuts announced yesterday by George Osbourne I, like I'm sure many of you, have been trying to get to grips with what these cuts will mean for the country going forward. Clicking through some of the reaction on the BBC new website...

London 2012 published the Olympic ticket prices today. There's lots of good value seats to be had. I took the data from the London 2012 site and built this viz that you can use to find out how much your favourite sport will cost you: Note:...

The government today published details of which quangos they are going to abolish. It's pretty ruthless. Here's an interactive viz using data from the Guardian Data Blog: Bonfire of the quangos Powered by Tableau Click on the Share button above to embed the viz in your own...

Warning! This post discusses disc golf. If you’ve not heard of it, just imagine I’m referring to “normal” golf. The US Disc Golf Championships, the world’s toughest, and richest event is happening this week. The leaderboard's on the PDGA.com, and on the USDGC sites are ok,...

There’s a chart doing the rounds that shows who is suing whom in the telecoms industries (eg at the Guardian). David McCandelish has improved it nicely here, and asked the question of whether companies who’s revenue is going down are more litigious than those on...

[Update: in theory, v6.1.1 has made it easier to create the bars described in this post by using REPLACE() and SPACE(). However, at time of writing (19 Aug 2011) there is a problem: while the solution works fine in Tableau Desktop, the view won't display...

Would you like a bottle of Dom Perignon 2000 vintage champagne? If so, read on. There are many things that make working in a business intelligence consultancy enormously satisfying: + you’re presented with a constant stream of fresh, interesting and stimulating challenges + you get to meet some truly great...

This is the second post about tooltips. In this post, I will describe a technique to add conditional formatting, of a sort, to your viz. This isn't a natively supported feature in Tableau (although it would be lovely if it was!), so you have to...

Tooltips are the missing link between a mark and its underlying data. They provide a valuable opportunity to explain more about the chart without requiring the user to examine the underlying data. The motivation for these posts was seeing so many vizzes on great charts on...

By default, Tableau won't label a bar. The axis is enough for viewers. However, a lot of our users say to us, "We like the bar, but we want to see the numbers as well". Rather than reproduce a bar chart as a table, labelling...

I like disc golf. It's the same kind of thing as ball golf, but played with discs ("frisbees"). Instead of holes in the ground, discs are thrown to metal targets. Just like ball golf, there's a plethora of stats generated. This...

Here in the UK we have just been through (and, at the time of writing, are still enduring) a general election. This presents us with some fantastic datasets. The first place I turn to is the Guardian Data Store, and they provided this, which allowed...

Those who know me from the Tableau forums or Twitter, or the UK Tableau User Group know that I love Tableau.Those that don’t know me: well, I work at the University of Oxford, and have been using Tableau since December 2007.  Since then, I have been raving about...

HouseSpendDataSmallUSCongressExpensesV3As part of our Federal government’s commitment to greater transparency, The US House of Representatives released its Statement of Disbursements (SOD) in electronic format, late November, covering July 1, 2009 through September 20, 2009. The government has been required by law to publish this...

This morning I came upon an RSS feed through Joe Mako and Clearly and Simply which is a brilliant work around to the lack of truly flexible choropleth map capability in Tableau.  While Tableau does do some choropleth mapping of US Census data at the...

For you Tablaeu users that are interested in stretching Tableau’s data mapping capability, Joe Mako shared this excellent piece from Clearly and Simply which was written by a very smart lady from Republic of Lithuania You will find sample Tableau packaged workbooks in the post. Giedre’s...

Last weekend I created a pretty detailed analysis of the 2009 Tour De France results along with historical race results going back to the first year the tour was held, 1903. You need to download Tableau's FREE reader product to play with the file.  You can...
