Shapes, Icons and Flags for your Tableau viz


Top Tips

Hi all,

Simple one this. A list of some resources that might be useful for supplementing your Tableau vizzes.

I keep finding myself going to these resources time after time. Feel free to suggest other go-to sites for your vizzes.

Icons

  • Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 13.27.33FlatIcon – Loads of free icons. Multiple formats & sizes. I love the sketched nature of a lot of these. Minimal and neat but with a lot of character.
  • BrainyIcons – Similar stuff here. Cool hand-drawn style looks great.

Flags

  • Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 13.25.53FreeFlagIcons – Wide variety of shapes for all your national flag requirements. Very neat and professional looking and a wide variety of shapes and styles . Ideal for any viz requiring custom flag shapes.

Maps

  • Tableaumapping.bi – Want gesopatial data for your maps? Allan Walker Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 13.28.58
    (@allanwalkerit) & Craig Bloodworth (@craigbloodworth) have you covered in this excellent resource. If you don’t see what you need here then ping them on Twitter – what they don’t know about maps aint worth knowing.
  • ColorBrewer – Get that map colour scheme looking just right with this tool

Review Services

  • HelpMeViz – Get some constructive advice on that viz from @helpmeviz.

That’s it. Hope these prove useful.
