13 Nov Terbine Links Tableau Users To The Physical World
For the first time Tableau can access the largest source of Internet of Things data feeds, allowing for advanced analytics and visualizations using the popular tool suite – sensor data from 50+ countries
LAS VEGAS—November 13, 2019—Terbine announced today in conjunction with the Tableau User Conference 2019 the release of its Tableau IoT Data Connector, giving access to its enormous system of data feeds from public agencies around the world. Tableau users can utilize the highly popular tool suite to generate analyses, visual plots and graphs, and much more based on real-world information produced by sensors reading roadways, electrical grids, municipal infrastructure, air quality, weather, aviation, marine, satellites and deep space platforms.
“Our system now offers well over 25,000 feeds coming from city, county, state and federal agencies, plus their counterparts around the world,” stated David Knight, Terbine CEO. “Linking this massive system with Tableau puts all of that data at the fingertips of users in virtually any industry.” Any organization can join Terbine and utilize the Tableau IoT Data Connector for six months at no cost. Eventually, subscription fees will initiate for commercial users, whereas academic and research organizations can continue to use the system without charge.
Global Public Infrastructure Sensor Data, In One System Accessible With Tableau
Prior to Terbine, users had to search for data feeds, create accounts with each provider and learn access methods for each source. This often required writing software to link with those feeds. Terbine offers businesses, government agencies and academia alike a unified, single-access system that eliminates the need for users to set up thousands of individual data retrieval accounts. The myriad public agency feeds are strongly characterized and made available through one interface, usable by both AIs and individual users. All current data feeds can be viewed at terbine.io and accessed manually via Web, programmatically via APIs, and now through the Tableau IoT Data Connector.
