Tableau for Data Visualization
Our first Tableau course will show you how to connect datasets to Tableau, understand the user interface, create interactive visualizations and how to save and distribute your work.
Tableau has many excellent visualization options for your data, from simple bar charts to interactive maps and box-plots. In this course, we will step through each type of visualization, learning how and when to use them.
Filters, sets and groups enable users to create custom lists and calculations that can enhance your ability to isolate certain portions of your dataset. Filters also create great interactive elements on your dashboards.
Tableau has its own Calculation Language that is similar to SQL or Excel. In this course, we’ll write some basic formulas in the Tableau Calculation Language, incorporating useful in-built functions like LOOKUP() and WINDOWSUM().
In our second course on Tableau formulas, we learn how to use logical functions, such as AND, IF and OR. In the second part of this course we also examine text, time and date functions and how they are best used in Tableau.
In Tableau, it can be difficult to combine different levels of granularity in a single view. Level of Detail (LOD) Expressions solve this problem but do require some practice to master.
As Tableau can combine multiple large data sources, users must monitor performance and loading times carefully. In this course, we’ll see techniques for reducing loading times, from joining data sources to changing calculations.
This course moves beyond the regular visualizations in Tableau and shows users how to create more advanced charts such as layered maps, funnels and waterfall charts.
Tableau contains connectors to many data sources, from Google Sheets to SQL databases. We’ll learn how to connect to these data sources, create joins and blends across them, and publish them to Tableau Online and Tableau Server.
In this course, we'll use Tableau Prep's basic cleaning tools. We'll prepare a dataset with many errors for use with Tableau Desktop.
This course is about the Tableau Prep tools which enable you to reshape and reform your data. This includes merging multiple data sources, adjusting the granularity of the data and pivoting from wide to tall datasets.
