The Force is strong with Tableau users lately. It all started when Tableau built a Web Data Connector (WDC) to the Star Wars API. Then, they sat back and watched as the Tableau community put the data to work.
The Star Wars data fever didn’t end there, though. In the nearly two weeks since Episode VII’s release, dozens of visualizations have popped up all over the web.
Here is one of my favorites.
Star Wars Sentiment Analysis: I could spend hours playing with this visualization by Adam McCann. In fact, I recommend grabbing a bucket of popcorn, sit down with your favorite Wookie and some nerfherders and walking through his entire analysis of A New Hope, in chronological sequence.
May the Force be with you!
