Details

We will be joining forces with the Tableau User Meetup group this month to talk about mapping in Tableau!

Tableau is business intelligence software that allows anyone to easily connect to data, then visualize and create interactive, sharable dashboards. It's easy enough that any Excel user can learn it, but powerful enough to satisfy even the most complex analytical problems. Securely sharing your findings with others only takes seconds.

Our presenters:

Brittany Brannon of Slalom Consulting and PK Kase of Oregon Department of Transportation. Brit and PK will lead us in a hands-on knowledge-share of their work with Tableau mapping.

What to bring:

1. Laptop

2. Free version of Tableau Public (https://public.tableau.com/s/download)

3. Free Mapbox Account (https://www.mapbox.com/pricing/)
