Tableau is about to knock your socks off again – A sneak peek at Tableau 7 features

1 comment

Now that TCC11 has ended, the cat is out of the bag.  Tableau 7 is coming, and coming soon; it should be available for download around the beginning of the year.  Christian Chabot demoed many of the new features (but I’m sure not all) of Tableau 7 Desktop and Tableau 7 Server.

Some of my favorite new features (which we got to play with at TCC11) include:

  • Filled maps!! (though they don’t go down to the zip code level)
  • Wrapped maps
  • Using parameters in filters, bins, reference lines/bands
  • Improved statistics
  • Lots of improvements to make the most prominent features more easily accessible

But there is one sad feature: the end of Null Island (this is the place where invalid geographic data are placed).

Here is what’s coming in Tableau Desktop:

  1. Love the new features - going to take visualization to a whole new level

    One thing I was hoping they would allow is having html in the tool-tips for even more cool stuff with the tool-tips; But.. when Tableau takes this to the next level every single time, we are spoilt !

    Thanks for your blog !
