Tableau

  • Directions:
  1. Go to Tableau Public gallery at https://public.tableau.com/en-us/s/gallery and find 2 to 3 vizzes you like, click on the vizz and then download them with the button in the bottom-right corner to try to understand how they were made.
  2. Go to Stephen Few’s blog “The Perceptual Edge” ( perceptualedge.com) and to the section of “Examples.” In this section, he provides critiques of various dashboard examples. Read a handful of these examples.
  3. Go to dundas.com. Select the “Gallery” section of the site. Once there, click the “Digital Dashboard” selection. You will be shown a variety of different dashboard demos. Run a couple of the demos.
  4. Discuss these questions:
    1. • which 2 or 3 vizzes interested you?
    2. • what were some of the good design points and bad design points of the vizzes & demos?
    3. • What sorts of information and metrics were shown on the vizzes & demos?
