Using Tableau to visualise the diversity of LEGO sets.
I am a lover of LEGO (I think the official term for people like me is “Adult Fan Of LEGO”) and not ashamed to admit i have bought way too many LEGO sets and likely to buy more.
And of course I have been using Tableau for a while now.
So I decided why not combine my love for LEGO, Python and Tableau by extracting data from Brickset using Python, and then doing some visualisations on Tableau Public?
I wrote the following code to extract a list of sets from the database (I have masked my apiKey – to run the code, you will need to request your own apiKey from Brickset):
The visualisations have been posted to Tableau Public. You can enjoy them by clicking on this link:
