    Does Tableau nomenclature defining the application's features and layout have historical context?

    James Keuning

      I am curious about Marks, Cards, Shelves, Partitioning, Addressing, and other things that might not come to mind immediately.

       

      For Marks and Cards, I have not encountered these terms in software before and I wonder if they have historical significance in some early form of business intelligence, analysis, or data visualization.

       

      Same for Partitioning and Addressing; did Tableau invent this method of defining elements of a calculation or do they have context in prior art?
