  • Very insightful Pash. I never knew that there is a significant correlation between what the judge has eaten for breakfast and their decision-making in special applications to the High Court. I really like how you built up your story in the process of making a case heard in the High Court. Excellent choice of title, by the way, it is really…[Read more]

  • Hi Amey,
    Nice charts and dashboards you produced here. Really highlighted your proficiency in using the tool. Would have been good if you included some brief narratives to describe the information shown on the dashboards. As a proficient user of Tableau, are there any challenges in using the tool?
    Cheers!

  • Very entertaining Patricia. Excellent choice of photos to feature and use of bar charts as evidence to support the point you want to make or prove. Well done. Cheers!

  • Hey Bing,
    Thanks for the reading and for the comment. I am trying to really get rid of the grid lines in my Tableau charts but don’t know how. Looked at the community blogs but did not find the answer. Can you tell me how when you get the chance?
    On the number of death, I also thought of putting the percentage of death on new and relapse TB…[Read more]

  • Very informative Bing, you have very well highlighted the change in the parkland area in the selected SA4 in the two periods compared. Would be good to know your personal view if there has been a balance of benefit to the local residents who lose the parkland to urbanisation. I really can see your spatial mapping expertise on the tool you used…[Read more]

  • Very informative, I enjoyed the narrative of your blog, Sereen. The limitation on the availability of finding the data on this story was not a hindrance to visualise to your reader the conditions of Palestinian prisoners in the hands of the Israelis. I like your use of image at the beginning to build up the intensity of the story and the use of…[Read more]

    • Maricel, enjoyed reading your story. A few questions and suggestions on your first chart
      – why not put number of new and relapse incidences and treated cases on the same chart for easy comparison?
      – the last line on death count might be a bit tricky given that they are on different scales.
      – remove the grid lines too for all your charts?

      • Hey Bing,
        Thanks for the reading and for the comment. I am trying to really get rid of the grid lines in my Tableau charts but don’t know how. Looked at the community blogs but did not find the answer. Can you tell me how when you get the chance?
        On the number of death, I also thought of putting the percentage of death on new and relapse TB incidence per year so it’s relevant to the first 2 line graphs but only the morbidity on total reported TB cases was available.
        I know the first chart can be improved to visualise the message I want to tell and wish I am already as good as you in using this tool. 🙂 Cheers!

        • Hi Maricel,

          About the gridlines, go to the worksheet. On the chart, right-click, format. On the left, “Format Lines”, click on the 5th icon that just has horizontal lines (different thickness). In the different tabs, “Sheet”, “Rows” and “Columns”, the top option is “Grid Lines”. It’s a drop down, so just choose “none”. Hope that helps!
          Thanks for the compliment but I’m not sure whether I deserve it. Honestly, I am not that good in Tableau and only learning myself.

    • Great post and easy to follow. Maybe in the last chart you can use a different color to mark the decrease so we can focus our attention in that section. Cheers

  • Thanks Bing for the comment and the question. I started noting the difference in opinion between age group but shifted to the difference in opinion by State as the former did not reveal any interesting insight. It’s not surprising the seniors are least knowledgeable and no major difference between the other 3 age groups. And I found responses the…[Read more]

    • Hi Marcel, great post breaking down the analysis. Question, I was expecting a dashboard in the end that will put together everything… That wasn’t there? You also highlighted the min and maximum in the cases that had more than a 10% difference so I thought your story will be more focused around the difference in opinions between the different generations.

      • Thanks Bing for the comment and the question. I started noting the difference in opinion between age group but shifted to the difference in opinion by State as the former did not reveal any interesting insight. It’s not surprising the seniors are least knowledgeable and no major difference between the other 3 age groups. And I found responses the consistency of how Tasmanians responded more interesting. I could have elaborate the story more but..
        Anyway, with the dashboard, it is a challenge for me to put a one-page diagram with all the bar charts I did in Tableau that will not look cluttered. I still have to figure that out. 🙂 Cheers!

    • Hi Maricel
      Great story and insights, as part of the structure in the story and narrative I think you can use part of the chart and not the whole image. When you explain some specific things and make reference to the big chart I had to go back and check again which is a little bit unnecessary. Good job on the analysis.

  • Hi Ravi,

    Thanks for using Google Data Studio. With your positive experience, it looks like this tool is very user-friendly. But then you have a technical background. For non-tech people like me, is it just really simply loading the data and you can perform the analytics and visualisation you want? How would you compare this to tool to Tableau…[Read more]

  • Hi Yogitha,
    I agree with the challenges that you mention in using PowerBI as I have used this tool before. Requires a bit of a learning curve than Tableau for non-Tech users especially. I like the fancy look of the Sankey chart although when plotting two continuous attributes I would prefer the simple scatterplot diagram as you can get more…[Read more]

  • Hey Patricia,
    Thanks for the detailed documentation of your user experience, well done. I can refer to this blog if I use SAP Lumira again. Another drawback on the tool is that it is licensed (like Tableau). So better get the industry lead product if you are paying. Cheers!

  • Quite a lengthy post but a very good reflection of your user experience of the tool Yogitha. There’s a lot of Tableau tips that I can pick up from your blog and you were able to bring out insights from your interesting data from the visuals you created. Well done!

  • Hi Patricia,

    Nice choice of data and an excellent reflection of your experience in using Excel to visualise Brazil’s performance in the Olympic games through the period covered. I share the same sentiment on the things that Excel can provide for quick exploratory tasks. And I believe it is still the most used tool for data analysis.

    The only…[Read more]

  • Thanks for reading and for your comment Vanessa. I was in the middle of updating my blog when you read it perhaps so you did not see the changes I made. I have updated the visuals and shown the countries in Africa region that have the most number of TB incidents. Maybe have read your mind 🙂 Cheers!
