Scatter Plot with Box Plot Axis in Tableau 8.1

Here is another quick visualization that I put together to showcase the new Tableau 8.1 box plot feature. In this case I used a standard scatter plot to show the height and weight of the players in Major League Baseball. In addition to the scatter plot, I included a box plot at each axis to show the distribution of the height and weight separately. Using quick filters for both team and position it is easy to examine the distributions.

The end result is another great use of the new box plots in Tableau 8.1.

Happy vizzing!
