Best of the Tableau Web... June 2015

Here's a roundup of the best of the Tableau web for the month of June, including a Star Trek game made with Tableau, and a dashboard of a family tree.

Beam me up, Scotty. Now I’ve seen it all.

Tableau Zen Master Joshua Milligan created a data-powered (not Data-powered) Star Trek game using Tableau. In the game, the starship Enterprise is on a mission “to boldly Tableau what no one has done before.”

“Whereas the original [BASIC] game was text-based, Tableau is of course graphical. That opens up some really neat possibilities,” Joshua says on his blog.

In another novel use case, Chris DeMartini transformed his mom’s 23-page family tree into a beautiful visualization. And he shared a tutorial on DataBlick.
