Advanced Data Visualization and Intro to Tableau, Part 1

Data visualizations are a critical business tool. This workshop serves as an introduction to the visual techniques that are often employed when describing, analyzing, and communicating data in a business setting. We’ll start by explaining the role of data visualization in a business setting, and then dive into basic visual methodology.

In this class, we will dive deeper into chart types learned in the intro class, understanding how to customize them to meet their needs. We will also discuss chart selection and understanding which type of business problem should use which type of chart.
