Exploring the data

Use the Explore Data activity to visualize the data in various plot types. Visualization helps you analyze, understand, and find correlations in the data before or after the transformations are applied.

These plot types are available:

  • Line plot: Find relationships between two data sets on different axes. The data is displayed as a series of data points connected by line segments.
  • Area plot: Graphically display quantitative data.
  • Bar plot: Present categorical data in rectangular bars with heights or lengths proportional to the values they represent.
  • Scatter plot: Display values for two variables for a set of data. The data is displayed as a collection of points.
  • Correlation heatmap: Show correlation coefficients between two variables. The strength of the color of each cell corresponds to the correlation magnitude. The higher correlation is displayed in stronger color.
