About the Course

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....

Through this course learner can efficiently learn about dual layer maps, dual axis, creating calculated fields and many more. Thanks for such a great platform to learn and for great instructors.

This course, which I completed as part of UC Davis' Data Viz Specialization, was clearly presented and involved a lot of hands on assignments that helped to increase confidence and skills.

The videos are easy to follow and teach you the basic steps for Tableau. In some cases I found them a little too basic. The course could benefit from providing additional links to further reading or giving more in depth information. The assignments, especially those of the first two weeks, were not in line with the information provided in the course videos. Luckily some people provided useful information on the discussion forum. Even tough the peer reviewing process is a good way to learn from each other, the way the grading system is set up allows for people to get full points even if they have not achieved the requested visualisation.

Good content, but very little depth. I would describe this course as a highway, a mile wide but only an inch deep. This course also doesn't fit well with the previous course as it doesn't consider visualization best practice at all. There also needs to be many more structured opportunities for practicing the concepts covered, such as optional additional assignments.

Weekly lectures were extremely basic and often only a minute or so of actual content with another minute of preview of wrap up. If there is only minimal content, there is no need to constantly summarize lessons. Other than the poor course construction, the content was generally helpful in exploring basic tableau visualizations.

Overall not bad, but the course remains very rudimentary throughout. It doesn't show much examples like plotting Gantt charts, Tree Maps, or useful table derivations, etc,. Being Visual Analytics, there is no mention of analytical features available under "Analytics" option, like confidence intervals, forecasting etc.

A good course overall, but some of the assignments needed better descriptions/instructions. Specifically, it was not always clear - even after checking Tableau help pages - how to do certain calculations. This made it very hard to display correct data results in a viz, even when the format of the viz was correct.

I atended as a free user and I expected the course to be more technical. A possitive point is all the materials are very weel explained but there is a chance to improvement in the "tone" used by the teacher wich sometimes becomes a Little boring.

I liked more the other courses from this especilization, this was in part a repetition of things, but mostly it went through things that are not clear like the AGG on the variables.

Its good always to keep practicing anyway
