My First Tableau Stories

Tableau visualizations are meant to be shared.  The purpose of this post is to experiment with some of the Tableau visualization formats and their appearance within the web.  This page can be displayed on various internet-connected devices, and the change in appearance due to various Tableau settings can be observed.

I created my first Tableau stories using Tableau Public, following the tutorial series on the Tableau Public Resources pages.  I used the World Bank Data provided in the tutorials.  My stories generally follow the approach in the tutorials, but I have done some small humble customizations and created my own narrative.  At this point, I have not done the manipulations to create specific layouts for specific device types.

My first story shows total CO2 emissions by country over a multi-year period.  The story contains one worksheet (no dashboards) and the story display size is set to automatic.

Apparently will not let me embed the visualization directly using the HTML code provided by Tableau.

The visualization looks good on my small format Chromebook and on the iPad.

The visualization throws errors when I try to look at it on my old Android or on an older iPhone.

Here is the link to the first story.


More to come shortly!
