Iron Viz: Geospatial Contest
To celebrate the launch of Tableau 10.2 and the new spatial file connector that makes complex geospatial analysis as easy as a single click, our first Iron Viz feeder contest is all about mapping data.
We want you to use the spatial file connector to connect, and map geospatial data. Use any data you find interesting, but be sure that at least one of your data sources is a spatial file (learn about using spatial files in this blog post, and in the "5. Connecting to Spatial Files" training video on our Resources Page). Judges will only look at entries that use spatial files. The author with the best viz will win a free trip to the 2017 Tableau Conference in Vegas, Nevada to compete in the Iron Viz championship!
