Tableau Public: It's Here to Stay

on July 9, 2012

Tableau Public exists because of our mission to democratize data. Having spent last week with the Guardian's data team, I thought it would be a good time to reiterate our commitment to the platform.

Back in March we published a blog post outlining our commitment to Tableau Public - you should read this to understanding why it is important to us.

We also published a Tableau Public data policy which is similar to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If you're interested in how we'll react to controversial data being published, you should go read that post. Robert Kosara (@eagereyes) posted a reaction to our policy.

As always, we are interested in your opinions and welcome feedback on these policies.


I really do hope that you are going to be elaborating more on this issue. I was hoping for a tad more information.

Hi Suzy
Thank you for your comment. What further information were you seeking? The links in the blog post go to our full policy on Tableau Public, and a post that explains our commitment in full.
