One of the strengths of using a programme like Tableau Public is that it can pull various visualisations together into a single interactive dashboard. This how to will explain how that can work, using our DFID 2011 flight data.

Sometimes we have data that have chronological information associated with them. The DFID travel dataset is one example of that. There are lots of ways to visualise that information, but one way would be do display all the places DFID have travelled each day of the year. This can be done using an online mapping software called CartoDB and its 'Torque' function.
In our previous how to, we explained how to capture live data from the web using Import.io. In this how to we wanted to show you what we can actually do with that data.
We decided to make an interactive map with different coloured pins. Using Care Quality Commission data on hospital performance in England, we create a map of which hospitals the staff who work there actually recommend attending.
