We love playing with Tableau and seeing what new things we can do with it. These visuals all look better on a full screen so please feel free to download the workbook. ...

Histograms are yet another example of an efficient statistical tool that Tableau can create for you with ease.  Created by well-known Statistician Karl Pearson, a histogram also functions as an effective approximation to a variable’s probability distribution function. A histogram is a frequency plot: it will...

I’ve been thinking a lot about life balance lately.  If I love what I do for my ‘work’, why would I want to stop doing it to ‘play’?  I’ve struggled with these questions for a long time.  Chuck Hooper (blog:twitter) shared his thoughts on this...

Tableau comes preloaded with a great set of shapes already available for the user to choose from.  Shapes are useful in scatterplots and in bulletgraphs, among other visualizations, so having a variety to choose from is necessary to create as dynamic a visualization as possible....

  Whenever you save your work in Tableau, the default file extension is .twb, or Tableau Workbook.  However, you have the option to save your work under a different extension, .twbx. A .twbx file is a Tableau Packaged Workbook, meaning it is the original .twb file grouped...

Tableau gives us a lot of ways to connect to data. We can easily connect to Excel, Access, SQL Server, Oracle … the list goes on and on. One place that’s not in that list is email. We get a lot of data that’s been...

Last night was the Dallas – Fort Worth Tableau user group’s annual holiday party.  They say there aint no party like a data geek party, I think the 15 data geeks in attendance last night would agree! One of my favorite traditions is the year end...

A waterfall chart is visualization that helps illustrate the cumulative effect of multiple data elements.  The waterfall chart isn’t my favorite visual, but I've softened to it lately.  It's hard to not like a chart that is sometimes called the Mario chart due to the suspension of...
