Infographics Basics with Tableau

Infographics Basics with Tableau

The very best infographics are both eye-catching and easily readable, but what goes into creating them? A successful infographic tells a story using data, and making one requires a combination of data visualization, storytelling, and design thinking. In this workshop, we will talk about the five main steps it takes to create attractive and understandable infographics - Story, Data, Color, Text, and Structure - using the software Tableau Public.

This workshop will cover the basics of using Tableau Public for data wrangling, data visualization, and infographic creation. No prior experience with Tableau is necessary.

Participants should install Tableau Public version 2019.1 on their laptop in order to fully participate in the workshop activities: https://public.tableau.com/en-us/s/download

 

A livestream will be available for this workshop, beginning at 1pm on 3/28/19: https://ub.hosted.panopto.com/Panopto/Pages/Viewer.aspx?id=8189f6bc-22f0-4efc-9120-aa1d013993b0  Follow along with the Tableau tutorial, available here: https://github.com/rachelstarry/getting-started-with-tableau
