Stylish, slick and user-friendly interface that allows the user to easily convert time and spatial datasets from a range of files, xlsx, csv etc in order to create colourful, interactive data visualisations very quickly. Good for people, for example journalists, students, teachers, researchers, who have no coding skills and want to convert large datasets to interactive, graphical data.
Not open source. Also the data you enter into Tableau Public and any visualisations you create are stored on Tableau's public cloud, and are accessible to everyone - so not suitable for converting private or sensitive datasets.
Originally was designed for Windows, but now works with Mac, however only with OS 10.8 or later versions.
