More than Dots on a Map

At the recent Tableau Data Day Out in Melbourne, I presented a session entitled “More than Dots on a Map”. The idea was to show how Tableau could allow users to do spatial analysis of their data – irrespective of whether it had implicit or explicit location fields. By this I mean to go beyond just plotting shapes and empower the user to interact in powerful ways, asking lots of different questions that require the data to be shaped and visualised differently.

Below is a recording I made of the session – enjoy!

    Was my favourite presentation of the day. I always found my maps underwhelming but this helps immensely.
