The Data School Gym - Slope Graphs with Vertical Lines
It’s my birthday, so what else would I be doing other than practicing Tableau and having a cold beer? I’m working on a project (more to come in a couple months) and needed a way to create vertical lines in slope graphs that are based on dimensions.
So here’s your challenge. Given this data set of fruit sales by region, build this slope graph. If you can’t access the data, email me and I’ll send it to you.
Some formatting tips:
- I used Avenir Next Condensed for the font - 18pt title, 12pt in the chart.
- The decreasing value is highlighted with color #E15759 and the increasing values are using #A5ACAF.
This was a fun little challenge for me. You’ll likely either get it immediately or get stuck. Upload your answer to Tableau Public and leave a link in the comments. Have fun! I need to get back to my Punk IPA.
