Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a new Power BI Desktop file, and load into it sightings of whales and porpoises from the Whale and Dolphin Trust.  You can use the link on this page.

if you haven't got an Internet connection, or want to ensure you see exactly the results in this exercise, load data from the CSV file in the above folder instead.

Create a slicer based on the data allowing you to choose the species sighted:

Species slicer

This slicer has horizontal orientation (although you can probably see that yourself).

Now add a chart comparing sightings by month, but restrict this by choosing the slicer species shown:

Chart of sightings

Apply a filter to your visualisation so that it omits any sightings by people called Jan.

Save this workbook as Sense of porpoise, then close down the Power BI instance containing it.
