R vs Tableau data visualization

0 votes

Hi, I recently found this r package called "esquisse" which provides a drag and drop feature like tableau to create charts and graphs. Even though it provides few charts, R still provides more packages to create visualizations. Which is better for advanced data visualizations?

@Yash, This is a requirement based question. Before answering your question, the esquisse package can only create basic or normal charts not high-end visualizations.

Let me list out a few points

  • Tableau is more easy to create interactive charts than R.
  • You need to write scripts for each visualization
  • R has many packages to create different types of charts, unlike tableau.
  • Tableau can only create graphs inside the app whereas R can share its charts in other tools such as Tableau, power bi,etc.
  • R takes more time to create visualizations than tableau
  • R allows visualizations to be converted into multiple formats such as pdf, websites, dashboards, images than tableau
  • Tableau needs least programming or visualization knowledge whereas R needs programming as well as visualizaition knowledge,
