Tableau New Hampshire State Government Webinar Series: Focus on Maps
Tableau is designed to make the most of geospatial data, so you can get to the “where” as well as the “why.” With instant geocoding, you can automatically turn the location data and information you already have into rich, interactive maps to help your data come to life and tell a story. Census-based population, income, and other standard demographic datasets are built-in so exploring the data becomes a breeze with just a few clicks. Maps are a popular way to visualize data, but selecting the best options can be overwhelming and lead to mistakes. Beyond adding icons to a map or color-coding specific areas, Tableau can leverage many different techniques to add analytic insight to your visualization including incorporating shapefiles and mapping services, custom map images, and spatial databases. Watch this webinar to see a comprehensive view of different mapping techniques, the advantages and limitations of each, how to determine which is best, and how to implement them in Tableau.
