CREATING DATA VISUALIZATIONS IN TABLEAU


You can have data analysts and other data researchers gather all the best, most useful information, but if the clients and users can’t understand it, it’s useless. So, the data must be presented in easy-to-use formats that the average person can understand.


That’s why we are using data visualization. As the old saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words.

What is Data Visualization?


Data visualization is the process of communicating and translating data and information in a visual context, usually employing a graph, chart, bar, or other visual aid. Visualization also uses images to communicate the relationships between various sets of data.


Importance Of Data Visualization.

Here are some reasons why data visualization is important for presentations:


Easy interpretation: Visuals such as charts, graphs, and maps are designed to make data easy to interpret. They present information in a visual way that can be easily understood and remembered by the audience.


Clarity: Visualization can help to clarify complex information by presenting it in a simple and concise way. This is particularly useful when dealing with data that might be difficult to explain or understand without visuals.


Engaging: Visuals are more engaging than text and can help to maintain the audience's attention throughout the presentation. This is particularly important when dealing with long and complex presentations.


Memory retention: People are known to be highly visual creatures. Studies have shown that people are more likely to remember information presented visually. Data visualization can help to ensure that the key points of a presentation are remembered long after the presentation has ended.


Persuasion: Data visualization can be used to persuade the audience of the presenter's argument or point of view. By presenting data in a clear and concise way, the presenter can make a compelling case for their argument.


In summary, data visualization is an essential tool for presentations as it can help to clarify complex information, engage the audience, improve memory retention, and persuade the audience of the presenter's argument.


The advantages of data visualization include:

  • Gives the reader the means to quickly absorb information, improve insights and make faster decisions.

  • Provides an easy means of distributing information that offers users more opportunities to share their insights with everyone involved in the project.

  • Imparts an increased understanding of what steps an organization must take to improve itself.

  • Offers the ability to attract and maintain the audience's interest by giving them the information they can understand.

  • Gives the decision-makers the means to quickly act on findings, deliver successful outcomes faster, and have fewer errors.

  • Eliminates the need to excessively rely on data scientists because it is more accessible and easily understood.



What are the different types of visualizations that can be made using Tableau?

Tableau offers a wide range of visualizations, including:

  • Bar charts

  • Line chart

  • Scatter plots

  • Heat maps

  • Geographic maps

  • Treemaps

  • Pie charts

  • Gantt charts, and more.

Creating a dashboard in tableau


Dashboard definition

A dashboard is a way of displaying various types of visual data in one place. Usually, a dashboard is intended to convey different, but related information in an easy-to-digest form. And oftentimes, this includes things like key performance indicators (KPI)s or other important business metrics that stakeholders need to see and understand at a glance.


Example dashboard




Once you’ve created one or more views on different sheets in Tableau, you can pull them into a dashboard in two simple steps:


Step 1: Open a dashboard sheet: select Dashboard from menu, then New Dashboard


Step 2: Add views to your dashboard by dragging sheets onto the dashboard.



Here you have created a basic dashboard. You can add more tableau features as per the requirement.
