Tableau is a software that allows you to import and analyze data sets, either your own or others that are available. You can use Tableau to visualize your data in many different ways, from scatter plots and bar diagrams to geographical information in maps. You can also design interactive dashboards that can be published online, these provide the reader with the opportunity to choose what information he/she would like to highlight. We use the workshop to get to know our data set and the software and then we design our own dashboards. You can read more about Tableau here.
Tableau offers free software to students and staff at universities and colleges. You can request this by filling out one of the two forms below:
