Hello Tableau Community my #DataFam,


Satoshi Ganeko created this amazing viz which allows you to draw a spirograph in Tableau. It is amazing to see how Tableau users continue to innovate and push the limits of a viz. Not only in the amazing data analysis and story telling done with the product. But the literal art that is now being created. Do you have a favorite piece of Tableau art? Comment on it below! We want to see what people are creating!
