I’m wanting knowledge on as many different kinds of data visualization software as possible, and the latest one I’ve started working with is Tableau Public.
But I’m still excited. I like Tableau’s potential for using rawer, itemized data sets as comparable to the other data visualization tools I’ve used. It does all the summarizing for you.
Plus, it’s big on highlighting specific data on request. Go ahead, click on just about anything down there, and it highlights specific information for you. Pretty handy if the data sets start getting complex.
So, here’s my first simple Tableau data visualization. It’s based off of Ultimate Championship Wrestling, a ministry I’m involved with at my church here in Yuba City. Yes, go ahead and laugh, I’m a pro wrestling mark and I don’t care.
I compiled a list of every individual title reign for the two championships UCW uses, and then built this graph to where you can see how many times each individual wrestler has won each title.
It’s real basic, but it’s a start and is really just scratching the surface of what Tableau is capable of.
Oh, and if you’re interested, UCW’s March Madness XIII is at 7 p.m. on March 11 at Calvary Christian Center in Yuba City.
