Sometimes real work leads to auxillary work that is needed for another purpose. That was the case in this article in which I took a deep dive into computing and visualizing population densities across the US. The results were fascinating and made a good case to share in this blog.
This is a fun article. I created a Tableau dashboard that allows us to view 55 years of temperature data to see if global warming is impacting where we live. When you spend a little time using this tool, you will have a better appreciation of the variability of weather and the difficulty of concluding anything about global warming.
In my continuing series of understanding air temperature changes over time, I go deep to develop predictive models of air temperature changes at over 3200 monitoring stations. Alteryx and Tableau simply were outstanding in allowing me to perform this work in a couple of nights.
This is a summary article that contains links to the Tableau vs Power BI series I have been working on. I also include some impressions about using the software tools in real-world situations.
The vision formed 2 years ago. Many months of experimentation and testing went into completing the vision. You need to read the article to understand what I mean.
This is test 5 of a series that compares Tableau to Power BI. The purpose of this test is to see which program has a faster computational engine.
It has taken me nearly 4 years and writing over 300,000 words to create a word cloud. The data processing behind this word cloud is pretty cool, too.
