Hi Tableau Community!


This week we are excited to highlight the winning vizzes for Iron Viz Europe 2018! We loved following the chatter and camaraderie on Twitter and across the community and were incredibly impressed by the caliber of entries. You are all truly amazing analysts and storytellers!


From the topic of "European Cities" 29 entries were submitted. Out of those entries, three amazing vizzes rose to the top! Daniel Caroli's Metro Systems in European Cities, Klaus Schulte's Affordable Housing in Larger German Cities, and Sarah Bartlett's European Cities on a Budget. The authors of these three vizzes have each won a trip to London in July for Tableau Conference Europe where they will battle it out on the big stage for European Iron Viz Championship! You can read all about the scoring categories and process on the Tableau Public blog. Congratulations!
