Combining real time and historical data with Tableau
In the fall of 2019, EarthRanger released a tight integration with the leading data analytics and business intelligence software, Tableau
. As part of this partnership, protected areas who implement EarthRanger also have access to a three-year free license of Tableau, provided via the Tableau Foundation
In October of 2019, Ol Pejeta was one of the early adopters of the EarthRanger-Tableau integration. Eager to expand and help their tech answer new questions, Kennedy Muriithi, an IT Engineer on Njoroge’s technology team, embarked on a journey to learn and be trained on Tableau. Today, with a list of growing reports in store, Njoroge sees this new functionality in a brand new light: “Using Tableau with our EarthRanger and historical data really enables us to play around with data a bit more - we can finally use stored data that hasn't been well manipulated and truly enhance the capacity and quality of work that comes along with our use of EarthRange
The first internal client of the Tableau integration was the Wildlife and Monitoring team, but the future is open for the ecological monitoring team to look at both EarthRanger and Tableau for tracking not just rhinos, but many of the other wildlife in the conservancy.
