The Health Risk of Where You LiveBored of the default graphing options on Microsoft Excel? Want to take your data visualizations to the next level?

Tableau is a software program which allows users to create stunning
visualizations of their data. Users can import data in a number of formats (an Excel spreadsheet, for example) and Tableau will help them create graphs and charts that go beyond what they can do in programs like Excel.

There is a free version of the program called Tableau Public if you’re interested in downloading this and giving it a try. For those who work in SMHS, the folks at CASS (Computer and Applications Support Services) recently added Tableau Public to the software center to make it available for you to download on your work computer.

Be sure to explore Tableau Public's gallery of examples including The Health Risk of Where You Live, Ohio, 2017 by Joshua Smith.
