Data Viz Done Right

Workout Wednesday: Which airport should you fly from?

No comments
This is first time I've ever created a variable width bar chart, so I had a lot to learn. I was able to quickly implement all of the requirements that Emma outlined except for the variable width bars. Fortunately there's a great knowledge base article that outlines the basic steps. Once I read through it, I was done!

What were the sneaky bits for me?

  • Creating a measure for the variable width bars
  • Using a table calc to return the airport with the shortest drive time (Emma did this as a separate sheet, whereas I did includes this in the title of my variable width bar chart
  • Using a data source filter to filter the airports

Another fun challenge in the books! Thanks Emma!!
