How to Create Background Images in PowerPoint (for use in Tableau)



Drawing Background Images
for Use in Tableau

In early January, I published a visualization on drunk driving.  The viz became quite popular and is currently my second most favorited viz on Tableau Public.  Most of the comments that I received centered around the background image.  Most people simply wanted to know how I created it.  If you know me, you probably know that I created it in PowerPoint.  Below is a snapshot of that viz.


In early April, I published my IronViz Agriculture entry.  This viz also utilized a background image that I drew in PowerPoint and once again, I received a lot of questions about how I created it.  This viz is also pictured below. 



Since there seemed to be people interested, I decided to put together a 10-minute video showing exactly how I drew these backgrounds.  Enjoy!
