This is not your average map!
Design of complex systems such as the International Space Station (ISS) or modernization of the U.S. Army Brigade require engineers to evaluate designs from a large number of viewpoints that represent stakeholder perspectives. Excel is often chosen as a tool for such viewpoints and their data dictionaries.
Large Excel spreadsheets result.  They create difficulty in determining how each viewpoint maps to the others. The goal of this presentation is to demonstrate how Tableau can assist in visualization of viewpoint mapping. We will look at the Dept. of Defense Architecture Framework (DODAF) version 2.0 mappings used in systems architecture design.
