Halloween Dashboard Showcase – Wicked Witches & Baffling Bats
by Joseph Herbert, Data Consultant
Using the search function of Tableau in-built maps, you can also search for any Scottish postcode, town or city to find out if there was a historic witch or a bat roost near you!
Find out more about how Joe built this dashboard below:
Joe also created interactive tooltips displaying detailed information on the records of each witch, which was a lot of fun! There were lots of intricate (and somewhat gruesome!) details buried away in tables of the data set, which added a lot of context to the geographical information.
With some of the information being over 400 years old, connecting all the different data types was a challenge, but once completed this allows for Tableau’s Hyper Engine to recall all the detail quickly by linking the data sources together.
