#MakeoverMonday Week 26 2019
The Tableau Community provides excellent resources for evangelists to learn, create and inspire enthusiasts. #MakeoverMonday is one such initiative by Eva Murray and Andy Kriebel. It’s a portal into the plethora of functionalities that Tableau provides and is facilitated via simple datasets.
For this week the dataset chosen was the ‘World Alcohol Consumption’ dataset from Data.World
- Simple representation via bar charts
- Legible axis labels
- Perfectly scaled axes
Here’s my slant –
Since the dataset is pretty simple – the onus was on the visual appeal, which in my opinion is the essence of Makeover Monday exercises.
I used simple Tableau functionalities – Shapes and text to create a graph (Countries x Liters of alcohol consumption per capita). I filtered it down to the top 10 ranked countries to make it more intuitive.
This was my maiden attempt at a makeover Monday dataset and I plan to post these visualizations every week with a detailed walkthrough as the visualization get equipped with complex functionalities.
