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.
