FlowingData Welcomes Tableau Software

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

I’m pleased to welcome Tableau Software as FlowingData’s newest sponsor. I know that a lot of you already use Tableau for your data visualization and analysis needs, but for those of you who haven’t heard of it, Tableau is a tool that aims to make “databases and spreadsheets understandable to ordinary people” with an emphasis on statistical visualization and visual analysis.

One of the co-founders is actually one of the founding members of Pixar, believe it or not. I don’t know about you, but that has awesome written all over it. Check it out for yourself and sharpen your visualization skills (hint) for the next FlowingData deconstruct/reconstruct project. Thanks, Tableau!
