A Graph Recreation in Tableau – Half 3: A number of Charts
It appears the exercise continues over my publish exhibiting the sankey-style slopegraph in Tableau here and the directions on easy methods to construct it are here. What a tremendous Tableau neighborhood on the market. Various folks have already been enjoying with this and Tableau Zen Grasp Mark Jackson posted on Twitter a terrific use of this, exhibiting the NCAA bracket rating of Spherical 1 vs. Spherical 2. We began speaking about including Spherical 3 and we had been brainstorming earlier this night on how to do that.
Only for reference the unique graph is here.
My first method was to repeat and previous the information from the earlier directions extending the Xval. Principally 49 knowledge factors for every state with Xval from 1 to 2 after which a brand new set of information factors with Xval from 2.4 to three.9. The one cause for the hole was for the labels in between (however I did not find yourself needing this). This method labored completely, nevertheless it doubled the scale of the information. I noticed that I may maintain the identical Xval vary with out doubling the information by simply including a number of extra fields.
I created a brand new area for curve2 that makes use of the 2014 estimate (made up knowledge) vs. 2013. I additionally created a Color2 and Size2 that did the identical factor. Then I created two sheets. One plotting the unique « curve » and one plotting « curve2 ». After making the axis and format equivalent on each sheets I dumped them collectively on a dashboard. Observe the primary sheet has a set axis from .5 to 2.5, whereas the second sheet begins at 1 and goes to 2.5. As a ultimate contact I additionally added two dashboard spotlight actions, one for every sheet and highlighting the opposite. This creates a very nice hover impact for the general dashboard.
