Line charts are easy and quick to create in Tableau and you have great flexibility to move your date fields into any order you choose. That’s how I created this week’s cycle plot for book prices in Germany.
For this week’s #MakeoverMonday we’re looking at how many visits abroad people from the UK are making on a monthly basis.
Fos this week’s #MakeoverMonday challenge, Charlie picked a chart about Amazon’s revenue vs profit. Line charts are a great way to capture time-series data at different levels of granularity.

For his first dataset, Charlie picked the topic of how popular different American sports are with spectators.
In this blog I describe my Makeover approach for the original viz.
week 49, Andy picked a dataset about union membership, from an article by Mona Chalabi, who writes for the Guardian and is a recognised journalist who uses data visualisation and data art to make information more accessible.

For week 29, Andy picked a topic that is likely to cause a few people to blush. It’s always interesting
It’s Pride Month which offers a great opportunity to remind people that we’re not done yet when it comes to equality.
So it’s important to use our #MakeoverMonday platform also to highlight inequality, attitudes, opinions and perceptions.
For week 19 Andy picked baseball data and I’ll be the first to admit that I expected it to not be fun, because it’s a topic I know nothing about and I wasn’t quite ready to spend hours learning about baseball. Until I did.
