By the end of this guided project, learners will have created an interactive graph that applies principles of data visualization to tell a story using basic sales data. This project will illustrate some of the basic features of Tableau software and allow learners to obtain a good introduction to using the open source software, Tableau Public. In this project, learners will use sample data as a building block to create a shareable interactive data visualization chart. This skill is helpful for anyone interested in learning more about how to begin working with data to tell a story, highlight change over time, see and understand data, or make well-informed data driven decisions. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
