MaptimePDX: Mapping with Tableau - CoMeetup with the Portland Tableau User Group
WeWork Custom House

We will be joining forces with the Tableau User Meetup group this month to talk about mapping in Tableau!

Tableau is business intelligence software that allows anyone to easily connect to data, then visualize and create interactive, sharable dashboards. It's easy enough that any Excel user can learn it, but powerful enough to satisfy even the most complex analytical problems. Securely sharing your findings with others only takes seconds.


Our presenters:

Brittany Brannon of Slalom Consulting and PK Kase of Oregon Department of Transportation. Brit and PK will lead us in a hands-on knowledge-share of their work with Tableau mapping.

What to bring:

  1. Laptop

  2. Free version of Tableau Public

  3. Free Mapbox Account


6:00 – Gather and settle in

6:10 – A few words from our groups and sponsor

6:20 – Mapping with Tableau – hands-on so bring your laptop

Tableau mapping 101

Introduction to using Mapbox with Tableau

Brief overview of using ArcGIS and Tableau

Tableau map examples

7:20 – Tableau Doctor

Great opportunity to ask any questions about mapping with Tableau!

7:40 – The best part – meet other Tableau users and map makers!

Stick around to continue the conversations started by our presentations.

We'll be heading to Pints Brewing (412 NW 5th Ave, Portland, OR 97209) afterwards for anyone that is interested.

Lots to cover so RSVP and get there early!
