Analyzing data and coming up interactive visualizations is easy in Tableau but sometimes getting everything looking polished isn’t. In this session you will learn how to break away from the default formatting in Tableau Public to create interactive data graphics that match your style guides and engage your readers. 

We will teach you how to:

•change colors, shapes, borders, fonts, and other basic formatting

•incorporate images, logos, and other graphic elements

•take advantage of advanced interaction techniques to incorporate multimedia

•utilize design and layout best practices to make sure that your visualization looks polished and professional

Tableau Public is a free tool for journalists. Some familiarity with the product is recommended; a beginner session earlier in the day should prepare you enough for this session. This is a free training, however you must be registered for the CAR Conference to attend this class.  Limited seats are available.  

This class is full.  There may be a few seats available on-site. If you are interested, please arrive a few minutes before the class begins and the instructors will let you know how many seats may be available.
