This is the first of a three part series showing how Tableau, Alteryx and Power BI can be used to perform trend modeling of data. After these three demonstrations are complete, a competition using worldwide data will be completed to see which software platform performs the best on completing this type of work.
When random violence enters your life, you gain a new perspective on life. This is a story from my 16th year of life, which might have easily been my last.
I like to play with pictures by turning numbers into visualizations. It is a passion of mine and I am proud of it.
We recently made a discovery that allows us to use Alteryx and Tableau with the IBM BigInsights Hadoop platform. This article describes how that happens.
The workshop that accompanies the Big Book of Dashboards is excellent. I had a great time during the inaugural course and I encourage anyone interested in this topic to attend a future workshop, if possible.
Three years have come down to this article. I now feel that I have a good grasp on the spatial and temporal changes in temperature over the past 50 years. I feel like I have now achieved one of my goals in doing this work.
In this article, I give links to monthly aggregated temperatures, as well as decade aggregated results. These files are much smaller than the daily data files and should be easier for most people to render in Tableau or their favorite graphics package.
This is the first article of a series that will give download links to the processed global climate data sets I have developed. This article contains daily temperatures from monitoring stations around the world.
