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.

IN THIS COURSE

  • 5m 50s
    In Tableau Desktop, you use your data to create views and explore different avenues of analysis. In this video, we’ll look at the different stages of creating a basic view - from connecting to the data to finally building the view. FREE ACCESS
  • 3m 11s
    A bar chart is one of the most basic but useful charts for representing comparative data across different categories. In Tableau Desktop, you can create a vertical and horizontal bar chart, and even convert different types into bar charts. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    3.  Creating a box chart
    4m 9s
    A box chart is used to display the distribution of values along an axis. We’ll look at creating and configuring a box chart in Tableau Desktop in this video. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    4.  Creating & using maps
    4m 17s
    In Tableau Desktop, you can create maps to show quantitative values. These maps are handy for displaying values per location. We’ll look at creating a map and then assigning quantitative values to locations with the marks card in this video. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    5.  Creating a scatter plot
    3m 33s
    You can create scatter charts in Tableau Desktop to visualize relationships between numerical values. You can then increase the level of detail and number of marks by bringing dimensions to the marks card. We’ll also look at adding a trendline to a scatter chart in this video. FREE ACCESS

    6.  Creating a dual-axis chart
    4m 21s
    Tableau allows you to create a chart with dual axes. A dual-axis chart is a chart where two independent axes are layered on top of each other, allowing you to compare multiple measures. We’ll look at creating a dual-axis chart in this video. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    7.  Creating a histogram
    4m 27s
    In Tableau Desktop, you can display the shape of a distribution with histograms. Histograms allow you to see the frequency of continuous data by grouping them into ranges or bins. We’ll look at the different ways you can create a histogram in this video. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    8.  Creating & using groups
    4m 11s
    In Tableau Desktop you can combine related members of a field into groups. Groups are higher categories of smaller subsets of data. You can create groups by selecting data directly in the view or from a field in the Data pane. We’ll look at creating groups and then using them in this video. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    9.  Using dynamic filters
    2m 54s
    In Tableau Desktop, you can use filters to restrict the data that appears in the view. You can also take filters further and use them dynamically. One way you might do this is by creating a filter that shows a date period relative to when the view is opened. We’ll look at creating a relative date filter in this video. FREE ACCESS
  • Locked
    10.  Using advanced analytic tools
    6m
    In Tableau Desktop, you can implement advanced analytics tools into your view from the analytics pane. You can add reference lines, bands of an axis, trendlines, and forecasts to your view to give your analysis deeper insights. Tableau also allows you to define the scope for each of these tools.
