Now that TCC11 has ended, the cat is out of the bag. Tableau 7 is coming, and coming soon; it should be available for download around the beginning of the year. Christian Chabot demoed many of the new features (but I’m sure not all) of Tableau 7 Desktop and Tableau 7 Server.
Some of my favorite new features (which we got to play with at TCC11) include:
- Filled maps!! (though they don’t go down to the zip code level)
- Wrapped maps
- Using parameters in filters, bins, reference lines/bands
- Improved statistics
- Lots of improvements to make the most prominent features more easily accessible
But there is one sad feature: the end of Null Island (this is the place where invalid geographic data are placed).
Here is what’s coming in Tableau Desktop:
