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.

Open the report in the above folder:

Train statistics

The report contains data on UK station usage in 2017-18, broken down by ticket type.  The data is genuine!

Create a map showing the usage of stations for the region and passenger numbers chosen in the slicers:

The final map

This is only a suggestion for how your map could look.  Make sure you display the Passengers column on your chart, not the Estimated Passengers one.

Add a tooltip field so that you can see which station you're looking at:

Tooltip on report

This shows that we are looking at Waterloo station (as it happens, the busiest station in the UK).

 

Add a table which shows the data for the pie chart slices you select:

Slices Table of data
If you use the Ctrl key to select these slices ... ... you should see the season ticket travel for the 3 stations in question.

Save this report as Meeting your Waterloo, then close it down.
