Introduction to Data Visualization with Tableau

Are you currently involved in work that could be augmented by visualizing your data for analysis or to communicate your findings to the public? Would you like to further your skills or learn new ways to make charts, graphs, maps using the Tableau?

Being able to effectively communicate your data to an audience is a necessary part of any project, and is made easier through the use of visualization tool like Tableau. In this workshop, we will discuss the basic capabilities of Tableau as well as take a hands-on approach to using the tool.
