December Viz Roundup

By Lucas Stewart December 2, 2014
It’s time for the Viz Roundup! Every so often we look back fondly on our Viz of the Day feed and find vizzes that were especially meaningful, important, or entertaining to share with you. The new Story Points feature recently released with Tableau 8.2 has made it much easier to narrate events with data. Feast your eyes on these impressive ways members of our community have used data to tell a story.
