3 Minute Win - San Francisco Food Trucks

One of the features Tableau is known for is the speed at which users can build insightful visualizations. The "3 Minute Win" competition hosted by Tableau challenges users to create a viz in under three minutes to show the power of the standard functionality.

For my entry I decided to combine my love of food with data publicly available from the city of San Francisco. I found an interesting data set of 'mobile food facility permits' (a.k.a. Food Trucks). Applicants must declare what items they intend to sell as part of the application process, as well as which locations they plan to operate. By leveraging the parameter functionality within Tableau and some basic filtering capabilities, I show how easily one can pull up a map of the locations serving your favorite food.
