Visual Analytics with Tableau

In this third course of the specialization, we?ll drill deeper into the tools Tableau offers in the areas of charting, dates, table calculations and mapping. We?ll explore the best choices for charts, based on the type of data you are using. We?ll look at specific types of charts including scatter plots, Gantt charts, histograms, bullet charts and several others, and we?ll address charting guidelines. We?ll define discrete and continuous dates, and examine when to use each one to explain your data. You?ll learn how to create custom and quick table calculations and how to create parameters. We?ll also introduce mapping and explore how Tableau can use different types of geographic data, how to connect to multiple data sources and how to create custom maps.
