With Power BI day behind them, we move onto day 4 in which the team will be analyzing drought conditions in America.

Requirements:

  1. They must use the REST API to download the Comprehensive Statistics.
  2. They are more than welcome to supplement it with additional data.
  3. Before 5pm, they must have their data prep complete, dashboards uploaded to Tableau Public, and blog posts written.

A quick Google search will lead them to some fantastic articles and visualizations. I’m really interested to see what insights they find as I wonder if global warming has had an impact on drought conditions or if the patterns are merely cyclical.
