Visualizations [vizzes] are a fundamental tool in analyzing the data that you have imported and prepared in your workbooks. In this 10-video course, explore Tableau Desktop's graphic and chart styles, build views, create charts, and use tools such as dynamic filters, groups, and reference lines. Begin by creating a basic view to explore data in Tableau Desktop, then create vertical and horizontal bar charts to compare data across identified categories. This leads into creating box plots to depict the distribution of values and configuring whiskers to display all points at the maximum extent of data. Also, observe how to create and configure maps that show quantitative values for individual locations, and create a scatter plot and trend lines to visualize and compare relationships between numerical variables. Create dual-axis charts by using both number and date fields; create a histogram to show data distribution, and create and use groups from fields in the Data pane. You will complete the course by using dynamic filters, and working with advanced analytic tools.
