Building a COVID-19 Dashboard with Tableau

Which tool do I use?

Recently, I have been working on building my data visualization skills and I chose Tableau as a tool for telling stories with data. Tableau is one of the powerful data visualization tools and it is also used in business intelligence, marketing, and more fields. It is used not only for visualizing the data but also for hypothesis testing, feature engineering, dash-boarding, and storytelling, which are very important parts of a data science project. The great thing about Tableau software is that it does not require any technical or any kind of programming skills to operate. The tool has garnered interest among the people from all sectors such as business, researchers, different industries, etc. There are many BI tools available in the market and you can use them as per your requirements, but Tableau covers all the aspects of creating visuals and gives you the freedom to convey information to others in your own way.

Building a COVID-19 Dashboard:

One of the best examples of effective and interactive dashboards could be the recent COVID-19 dashboards. It is the basis of how we are seeing and measuring the impact of this virus in the world. Various countries and even states or regions have created their own COVID-19 dashboards to make people aware of the pandemic and asking them to take preventive measures. This is a great example of using data to educate the masses based on finding insights and educate them through visuals.
