Today was day 4 of dashboard week and the roller-coaster continues! Yesterday was a good day, so today was due to be a tough one again. The task today was looking at the US Candy Hierarchy from The Science Quarterly Review. There were some rules in place, we couldn’t use Alteryx and we had to complete the dashboard in Tableau Web Edit only.
Day 3 of dashboard week was up today, and I was hoping for better improvements compared to yesterday! Andy released the brief to us this morning, and it involved using an API from Solar System OpenData and then creating a visualisation in Power BI!
Day 2 of Dashboard Week was upon me today and what can I say? Well it was a bit of a disaster!
The first day of our dashboard week was all about UFO sightings from the National UFO Reporting Center Online Database. The task involved Web Scraping all of the UFO sightings from the webpage and then making a dashboard of our results. Here’s how I got on!
With the recent release of the new Tableau, there has been a lot of buzz around the new parameter action features. Therefore, I thought I would take a step back and write a blog post about how to actually create a good old parameter in the first place!
