Dual Combination Chart in Tableau
In this article, we will learn how to draw a dual combination chart in a tableau worksheet to do further operations. For this first look into two terms :
- Tableau: Tableau is a very powerful data visualization tool that can be used by data analysts, scientists, statisticians, etc. to visualize the data and get a clear opinion based on the data analysis. Tableau is very famous as it can take in data and produce the required data visualization output in a very short time.
- Dual Combination Chart: Combination charts are views that use multiple mark types within an equivalent visualization.
Dataset used in the given examples is Dataset.
For this we have to follow some steps :
Open the Tableau tool and connect a dataset to it. Drag and drop the one sheet of the connected dataset. Click on sheet1 to open the tableau worksheet. On clicking Sheet1 you will get whole dataset attributes on the left side and a worksheet for work.
To draw a dual combination chart you have to select a minimum of three attributes (one date and another two measured values) by drag and drop into a row then apply the other parameters for better visualization.
Example 1: In this example, we simply draw a dual combination chart by using the show me option.
Example 2: This example uses above example 1 with some extra marks (apply the label, color, and different graph marks) and which are shown easily below :
Example 3: This example uses above example 1 with some extra marks (apply the concept of hierarchy, label, color and graph marks) and which are shown easily below :
