January Updates

Hi 👋

First, I want to say how much I appreciate your interest in my work!

I'm excited to have you following along as I build new tools and publish new data visualization and videos. My goal is to bring you valuable insights, updates, and exclusive content to help you stay informed and ahead of the curve.

I look forward to sharing my progress and creations with you.

Visualization Generator Update

👉 You can now generate a Bump chart easily with the tool. They are perfect for showing the evolution of the rank of your data. All you need is a CSV with three columns: an id, the time, and the rank. I'll publish a video tutorial next month showing how to use it in detail.

👉 You can now export the result in Tableau Public and CSV (in addition to Tableau Desktop, which was already available). I create this tool to make complex charts easy to create and accessible to everyone. Making it available for Tableau Public users was a priority.

Here are all the other small new features and enhancements:

  • 🏡 A home page with all the generators: tools.ladataviz.com 

  • 🚨 Error messages displayed when uploading a file (the tool should not break)

  • 💨 Better performance for the Network Generator

  • 💬 Tooltips for the Network Generator to help you figure out your data before exporting

  • 😍 Better look and feel

🔜 Coming in February: Beeswarm Plot and Voronoï Treemap.

Starting a Youtube Channel

This has been a long-time project of mine, and I'm happy to start finally! At first, I'll use the channel to create tutorials to help you use my visualization generator. But this is only the beginning!

With this channel, I will focus on Data Visualization and Freelancing. I will help you learn new techniques and tools and share advice on freelancing. If you'd like me to cover something specific, don't hesitate to reach out!

Here's my first video detailing how to make a Network chart in Tableau, helping you convert tabular data (Excel, CSV) into JSON with Tableau:

That's all for this time 👋See you at the end of February!
