Hi Tableau Community!


This week I would like to share a Viz from the #MakeOverMonday that the amazing Eva Murray and Andy Kriebel help facilitate each week. They challenge users to use Tableau to display data in a beautiful and informative fashion. This week their data set takes a look at how much property you can purchase in the various top cities across the world. @Michael_Mixon! (@mix_pix) created this Viz and shared it to the Twittersphere. Check out all the vizzes from Make Over Monday by searching the #MakeOverMonday on Twitter.
