Favorite Visualizations

Tableau® software allows people to query databases by composing and manipulating interactive pictures of data. The results are vivid, insightful, and unlike anything you've seen. They help people save time and make better decisions. Visualizations are created with Tableau Desktop.  Tableau Server provides the ability to share dynamic content via a web-browser. Content can also be shared via a free reader (like Adobe's for pdf files). 

Below are links to my favorite public data visualizations.  Like what you see?  Want to learn more?
