Tableau is going to be working with The Guardian's Data Store

Tableau will be spending next week working with the Guardian Data Store, one of the most influential data journalism sites on the web. Andy Cotgreave (@acotgreave) will be sat in the newsroom, contributing to stories, helping the data team, and bringing more visualisation of news stories to the site's audience.

This week long partnership is an exciting time for Tableau. Tableau Public is key to our strategy of democratizing data and is a tool we hope all data journalists can use to their benefit.

We have several aims for the week:

  1. Work on some great data stories
  2. Gain a greater insight into the day-to-day challenges of data journalism
  3. Understand how Tableau can improve Tableau Public to help solve some of these challenges
