The Visual Analytics Kit for Tableau contains macros designed to allow Alteryx Designer users the ability to seamlessly prepare and analyze data for presentation within Tableau. Also contained, are over a dozen samples showcasing different use cases for these macros. Two macros contained in the kit that will prove invaluable to Tableau users are the ability to output directly to a Tableau Workbook using the Output Tableau Workbook macro and the Polygon for Tableau macro, which allows you to create custom polygons for mapping within Tableau.
Continuing the series prototyping HTML based visualizations, I want to look at spatial data. One of the strengths of Alteryx is that spatial data is just data. It doesn’t claim to be a GIS product, it just assumes that every organization has spatial data and would like to process it with the rest of their data and specifically they don’t want to have to use multiple products to do it.
