Tableau Program Visualizations
What are they?
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. With Tableau visualizations it's said to be worth rows and rows! Tableau puts data in to a picture perspective that makes data drill down easy with filters and click on features. The tool makes the data come alive and respond to a user's interaction.
