While browsing the Internet for data heavy stories, journalism students are sure to run into the Guardian’s Datablog, where everything from the U.S. debt to infant mortality rates is being analyzed.

The detail oriented students will soon realize that the coolest graphics are followed by this Tableau image.

As it turns out, Tableau offers a free version of their software that promises to provide Windows users with interactive data graphics while requiring no programming skills.

When the software is installed new users will be prompted to “Watch the Getting Started Video,” which is also available online. Everyone from the Wall Street Journal  to the Seattle Times is using this cool tool, so students might as well get started.
