Tableau not only has a variety of tools to visualize data, but it also allows you to redefine the fields in your data to convey rich meaning. In this course, you'll explore how multiple dimensions of the underlying data can be portrayed using shapes, colors, and labels. You'll learn to build a wide variety of charts, such as pie charts, treemaps, and many more, to convey various information types. You'll also work with different techniques, such as hierarchical, combined, and calculated fields, to arrange the fields in the underlying dataset into hierarchies and groups, portraying relationships and facilitating data drill-downs for your users. Lastly, you'll learn how you can generate sets from combined data, so this data can be analyzed with the context of the set, as well as outside it.
