Quite an eclectic selection, this Interactive Inspiration round-up, ranging from JFK’s assassination reconstitution visualizations, to Doctor Who timelines and Thanksgiving visual breakdowns, and another impressive multimedia narrative from the New York Times’ graphic desk.But before we move on to today’s selection, a mention to a brand new book about one of the most popular visualization tools out there, Tableau.

Beginning with a foreword by Tableau CEO Christian Chabot, Tableau Your Data!: Fast and Easy Visual Analysis with Tableau Software outlines Tableau Desktop and Server from the basics of installation and creating your first viz to lesser-known techniques and shortcuts to final dashboard publication, as explained by Michelle Wallace in a recent blog post.

Hope you enjoy the full list of visualizations!
