The sunburst chart is ideal for displaying hierarchical data. Each level of the hierarchy is represented by one ring or circle with the innermost circle represents top of the hierarchy. The circle in the center represents the root node, with the hierarchy moving outward from the center. A sunburst chart without any hierarchical data (one level of categories), looks similar to a doughnut chart.
A waffle chart is basically a square version of a pie chart. Since it does not involve angles, it’s easier for the reader to compare accurately .A waffle chart uses a grid of differently colored squares (hence the name) to show proportion instead of pie slices, making it easier for the viewer to cognitively process the various data relationships. A lot of times, these are used as an alternative to the pie charts. It provides visual communication beyond simple data visualization.
Sets are custom fields that define a subset of data based on some conditions. A set can be based on a computed condition. For example, a set may contain customers with sales over a certain threshold. Computed sets update as your data changes. Alternatively a set can be based on a specific data point in your view. You can use sets to compare and ask questions about a subset of data.
Sometimes we often wanted to enhance Tableau Tables or Tableau Tooltips by adding some Icons or shapes. There are so many ways through which we can improve our Visualization. One simple way of doing this is to use Unicode icon/ASCII Character in Tableau.
This article helps you find the top and bottom N within the whole data set, and not in a subset of the data. Here, we will create two bar graphs in same work sheet, one is showing Top 5 values and the other is showing Bottom 5 values. Problem Statement: Suppose you have a large […]
Sometimes we need to change the background image in our dashboard/Worksheet so that we can better represent our analytical goal. As we know that, Tableau allows you to load dynamic image by using Custom maps option. Background Images are images that you display underneath your data in order to add more complex to the marks in the view.
