Skiers aren’t the only ones who care about base layers. If you have just begun to traverse the surface of mapping in Tableau, keep going — there is considerable depth ahead. Maps, as every student of visualization knows, display information in ways that people can readily understand and use.
Tableau integrates base layer maps that allow you to add layers of data using a wide variety of styles and fonts. Detailed boundaries, intelligent label placement, international coverage and up to sixteen zoom levels make Tableau maps an easy and effective way to represent data.
On April 25th, Jake Baillie, Director of Business Development for Urban Mapping based in San Francisco, will discuss Mapfluence, the embedded geographic technology in Tableau. The meeting will take place at the HUB Seattle, an incubation and co-work facility In Pioneer Square. You must reserve a place to participate in this workshop.
Update: Registration is now closed. If you are interested in mapping and would like to be included in another study group session, please let us know.
