Welcome, InfoActive Users!

Welcome, InfoActive Users!

Here at Tableau, our mission is to help people see and understand their data. With Tableau Public, we offer a free and powerful visual analytics platform that enables you to create, publish and share interactive dashboards and data stories on the web.

Since it was launched in 2010, Tableau Public has been used by over 100,000 bloggers, journalists, researchers and students to create, publish and discover over 500,000 data stories that have been viewed over half a billion times by readers around the world. Publications like Wall Street Journal, La Nacion and CNBC use Tableau Public for their data visualizations.

Tableau Public is completely free to download and use, and we recently made our premium features free for all account holders as well. The ability to protect your underlying data, 10GB of storage and connection to 10 million rows of data are all yours to put to good use.

So we invite you to try Tableau Public today, and we are always available at public@tableau.com if you have any questions.

Happy Vizzing!
