Parameters are a great way to add interactivity to a worksheet or dashboard; this allows the end user to see which values or metrics are most important to them. I'm originally from Wisconsin, but now live in Colorado. As such, I built a dashboard comparing the major climate characteristics of Denver and Milwaukee. The dashboard can be found here. The metrics include:
Tableau has impressive mapping capabilities and continues to refine these abilities in each new release. Living in Colorado, it comes as no surprise that I really enjoy hiking. In Colorado, there are 53 mountain peaks that are higher than 14,000 feet, which are commonly known as "14ers". I used Tableau to map the location of each of these as well as some other important information, such as what mountain range the peak is in and the standard route difficulty, length and elevation gain.
