High 5: The Best Vizzes of July and August

Our recent launch of Tableau 6.1, Evil Viz Contest and Sports Data Contest have brought out dozens of amazing new vizzes. Let's take a look at a couple of the highlights below:

  • Evil Maps - Steve Wexler entered the Evil Viz (aka dark maps) contest with this awesome Dr. Evil map (drag the filter to the right...).
  • Dow Drops - The Dow took a plunge on Monday but we managed to call a rebound on Tuesday, with a little help from some historical data.
  • MLB Payroll Analysis - David Newman proves you can never win a contest by too much with this clean and impressive story on payrolls (and their effectiveness) by MLB team. Congrats on taking home the Sports Viz Contest and winning a trip to the 2011 Tableau Customer Conference.
  • The Greatest Team in History - Adam McCann attempts the impossible: to determine the greatest team in NFL history. You may not agree with him, but you cannot argue with his viz!
  • Whose Public Debt? - It is easy to blame weighty public debt levels on the current administration, and often they deserve a great deal of the credit. However, Balkinization has an interesting viz that shows the cumulative effect is often more important.

So what are you waiting for? Get in on the action over at Tableau Public, or at the very least, take a stab at the Evil Viz Contest.
