R, Visualization

Two new great blog posts from Tableau community

Two of my favorite new Tableau blogs are “Data * Science + R” and “Data + Science”. Former is a great resource if you want to learn how to leverage R inside Tableau by walking through sample use cases. Examples are interesting and very thoroughly explained. This year’s first post was about change-point analysis in Tableau. This was a topic I heard from several of our customers and had been planning to blog about but haven’t had the chance.

“Data + Science” is another awesome blog. Jeff has been doing some great work with various types of undirected graphs. Yesterday he published a blog post about tree diagrams as a follow up to his beautiful Sankey diagram post from a few months earlier.

What I love about Tableau is the expressive power and flexibility of the product which combined with such a great user community leads to something new and beautiful almost everyday not to mention countless learning opportunities and cross-pollination. Take the graph below for example. Olivier Catherin took Jeff’s Sankey Diagram idea as an inspiration and further expanded upon it to create the following graph.

  1. Bora,

    Thanks for this post. I already knew about Jeff’s work, but I didn’t know about Data + Science + R. Amazing work being produced by that person. I cannot find a name for them but the posts are good enough to form the foundations of a text book. Really great stuff.

    Thanks,

    Ken
