The Tableau Tutorial Guide is a new initiative by NUS Business Analytics Consulting Team. We want to help University Students learn Tableau at their own pace with comprehensive and streamlined learning resources.
This guide was put together by Simon Hung.
Tableau is free for students. You can download it here:
UFO Sightings by National UFO Reporting Centre
Data Source: https://www.kaggle.com/NUFORC/ufo-sightings/data
Discover interesting insights with this data set: It can be anything, ranging from ‘average duration of UFO sightings across different countries’ to ‘types of UFO sightings over the years’.
If you’d like take ‘Year’ as a data point, you will need to extract the year from the ‘datetime’ data point. This can be done through string manipulation, column-to-text function or other methods within Microsoft Excel or Tableau. It is an additional challenge of this exercise. You are free to complete this exercise without using year as a data point.
Sample Answers will be released soon!
