Mapping in Tableau
Tableau is a software package that is increasingly popular for creating striking visualizations, such as charts and graphs, from tabular data. It also has an increasing number of capabilities to create maps. Source data can include native geospatial files (such as shapefiles or GeoJSON files), but also tabular data (such as CSV or Excel files) that include locational values, such as place names or coordinate data. This workshop will cover how to create maps in Tableau and on ways to manipulate the data and to effectively symbolize it on a map.
You can install Tableau for free as a university student: https://www.tableau.com/academic/students. You need to have it installed before the class.
Expect to receive more information before the day of the workshop regarding some background tasks to complete beforehand to help prepare.
This event is offered virtually in accordance with Duke's Coronavirus events policies. A zoom link will be sent via email to registered participants to join the workshop.
