It's May. The weather is starting to heat up (at least here at Tableau HQ in Seattle!), and people are talking about climate change.

In recent weeks, people have been discussing Ed Hawkins's incredible GIF which shows the entire history of climate change. Lucky for us, Tableau Zen Master Andy Kriebel replicated Hawkins's radar chart in Tableau and even shared the how-to, as seen in the viz below.

Check out the full tutorial on Andy's blog.

May was a big month of blog posts in Tableau land. Dive in to the links below to get updated on all things Tableau!
