I am having a play around with Tableau Public for some work I am doing on the PASTEUR4OA Project. Tableau Public is free software that can allow anyone to connect to a spreadsheet or file and create interactive data visualizations for the web. It took me a while to get started (my operating systems on all my windows machines and macs weren’t up to date enough!) but now that I’m in I’m really getting the hang of it.
I started off with looking at how many guest posts had been submitted and in what month they tend to come in. You can see from the visualisation that March is a really popular month, followed by September and August.
I then looked at how many guest blog posts are submitted by year. It looks like the number is on the decrease, see this visualisation.
I finished by looking at the gender of my guest authors. The main trend there seems to be less male authors over time – not sure what I’m doing to drive them away! 😉 See this visualisation for details by year and this visualisation for totals (26 Females, 36 Males – 64 in total).
I’ll continue to work on Tableau public for the project – hopefully my data visualisations will improve over time!
