Tableau Public visualizations have been viewed more than 7.5 million times since our February launch. That viewership is a direct result of talented and creative authors. To celebrate those authors and their vizes, we have made our own visualization, showing the top 100 Tableau Public views by traffic in Q3 of 2010. Take a look and as always, interact!
What's interesting this quarter is how professional data journalists have consistently created the most interactive views. Interactivity is the key measure of how good a viz is at telling a story and how compelling it is to readers. Data journalists are experts at telling stories with data and these authors clearly understand the new medium offered by Tableau Public very well.
Kudos to Steve Thompson at the Dallas Morning News, Justin Mayo at the Seattle Times, and Chad Skelton at the Vancouver Sun. All created visualizations that prompted over 80% of readers to interact.
