Thanks to the obesity in the USA I learned about Tableau Hex-tile map

Makeover Monday week 41 was about visualising Adult Obesity in the United States. (data)

My initial thoughts:

It would have been very fun to do this during the live Makeover Monday at #data17 but I don’t think I would have time to learn much.

So I took this opportunity to learn new Tableau tricks.

I decided this week to learn about making a Tableau Hex tile map thanks to this useful post from Rachel Costa from The Information Lab.

It was a little tricky and with a bit a searching online it worked out ok.

What I have learned?

  • Americans are fat, ok I already knew that
  • I learned how to make Hex tile map and use dummy calculation



Thanks to this post, I have also learned how create a color scale that separates data into separate range ranges.
