Density chart and transparent background in Tableau 2018.3

Finally Tableau 2018.3 is here and I couldn't be happier.

There are several new features but the ones I like the most are density chart and trasnsparent background.

Just after the announcement, yesterday I downloaded the new version of Tableau Public and in just 5 minutes I was able to test these new features.

In the dataviz I analyzed the 2017/18 shooting habits of the Golden State Warriors trio: Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant.

You can interact with data clicking on player, opponent team or player/team combo to filter just the specified portion of data.

2016 MLB Hume Runs

It's quite a long time since my last post, but I had this idea in mind about the Arc Chart.

So due to my passion for Tableau I did some homework in order to understand how to create this type of chart and thinking about arches the first scenario that came to my mind was baseball.

After having found a dataset showing all the Home Runs for the 2016 MLB season, I decided to visualize the hit distance in profile combined with apex and from above combined with speed.

Clicking on the top hitters name will trigger an higlight to better visualize those players' Home runs among the others.
