About this video
Tableau has brought the world of visual analytics within the reach of many nonplussed by Excel charts and graphs. But there is a surprising learning curve that gets in the way of using Tableau to its full potential; this course will show you how visual and cognitive science makes data visualization so satisfying. This course will give you the tools to use Tableau to its fullest and build great visualizations. In this course, you will begin by understanding a data-visualization business case with Tableau. Next you will learn about complex ways to connect your data. Moving ahead, you will explore how to express your data—ranging from standard bar charts to more cutting-edge visuals—and make data interactive using sets, filters, groups, and hierarchies. Next you will understand how advanced calculation techniques help improve visual analysis. You will also learn about Tableau's powerful tools (such as spatial analysis) to create maps that are embedded with your data. Lastly you will learn how to put all of your work together into dashboards. By the end of this course you will have gained a lot of confidence, which you can use to build useful, thoughtful, and beautiful visualizations using your complex business data.
