About Tableau Course

Tableau Course Details

Tableau Software is a software company headquartered in Seattle, Washington, United States which produces interactive data visualization products focused on business intelligence.It initially began in order to commercialize research which had been conducted at Stanford University's Department of Computer Science between 1999 and 2002.It was founded in Mountain View, California in January, 2003 by Chris Stolte, who specialized in visualization techniques for exploring and analyzing relational databases and data cubes.The product queries relational databases, OLAP cubes, cloud databases, and spreadsheets and then generates a number of graph types.

Tableau has a mapping functionality,and is able to plot latitude and longitude coordinates and connect to spatial files like Esri Shapefiles, KML, and GeoJSON to display custom geography.The built-in geocoding allows for administrative places (country, state/province, county/district), postal codes, US Congressional Districts, US CBSA/MSA, Area Codes, Airports, and European Union statistical areas (NUTS codes) to be mapped automatically. You can group geographies to create custom territories or use custom geocoding to extend existing geographic roles in the product.There are five ways to access their products: Desktop (both professional and personal editions), Server, Online (which scales to support thousands of users), Reader, and Public, with the last two free to use.Vizable, a consumer data visualization mobile app, was released in 2015.A sixth product known as Maestro, for data preparation workflows, is under development and is planned to release in 2018.
