Andy Kriebel recently pointed out that Tableau dashboards let you export their underlying data. Using data frames in R or Python we can read data from Tableau. Then we can plot with Plotly’s Python and R APIs. The use case: collaborate and share data across languages and teams.
One of Andy’s Tableau visualizations shows the percentage of female managers by country. We add .csv to end of the Tableau URL and make a data frame that looks like this:
Using pandas in Python or ggplot2 in R, we can make an interactive Plotly graph. The histogram below shows how many countries have a given percentage of female managers. See the R Notebook or IPython Notebook for the code.
