Did you know about the different chart types in Tableau?
Choosing the right type of chart depends on your data and what you are attempting to illustrate. There really is a whole art and science behind this concept and numerous helpful resources. I listed a few that I have used to help me decide which chart meets what need:
If you are interested in a book on the topic, I would recommend Effective Data Visualization: The Right Chart for the Right Data, Storytelling with Data: A Data Visualization Guide for Business Professionals, and The Truthful Art: Data, Charts, and Maps for Communication (Voices That Matter).
Now, on with the demo! In this DYK blog, I will illustrate how easily you can create a combined axis chart in Tableau.
What is it?
A combined axis chart is a chart type that includes one shared axis and two separate axes.
When do you use it?
In situations when you want to show related information in a single view and your objective is to save some real estate.
How do you create it?
Stay tuned for next month's DYK where we illustrate another chart type.
