At Tableau, enabling people to see and understand data is at the core of what we do. As the COVID-19 situation has unfolded across the globe, data collection and reporting has proven both difficult and highly variable. But it’s also shown just how important rigorous data collection and reporting really is. What people want to be able to see and understand is the data that most closely reflects reality, so that they can answer their own questions: How quickly is the disease actually spreading, and where is it concentrated? How might this outbreak impact me or my company? In developing this resource hub for Tableau Public, we want to connect you with the most trusted data that exists on the disease, and enable you to investigate those questions for yourself.
We understand the critical role that trusted, accessible data plays during a time of uncertainty for you. We are pooling our resources to launch a free, publicly accessible resource hub for data about the spread of COVID-19 and the ongoing public health response. Here, you’ll be able to access visualizations—created with data from the World Health Organization and Johns Hopkins University— that allow you to track the spread of the disease in real time. And you’ll be able to download an interactive dashboard on Tableau Public that will enable you to blend data on your company or people with what’s available on the virus to better understand how the changing situation could affect you or your organization.
