Exploring Data Like an Explorer — a Guide to Tools, Techniques, and Philosophy

Data Explorer

The road to uncovering insight and narratives within your data begins with exploration. And although numerous tools now exist to help you analyze and visualize your data, this process is largely undefined and can be intimidating. But if we aim to think like an old-fashioned explorer — to plan our voyage and be prepared to improvise with relentless curiosity — we can often come away with unexpected discoveries and have more fun along the way.

This session will reinforce the value of visualization in exploratory data analysis and lay out a system for the data exploration practice. We’ll walk through the entire exploration process: from wrangling and tidying to visualization, through many rounds of iteration, stopping along the way to examine a few use cases and valuable tools to help you find your way in unfamiliar terrain.
