In the last post of this series we dealt with axis systems. In this post we are also dealing with axes but this time we are taking a look at the position scales of dates, time and datetimes. Since we at STATWORX are often forecasting – and thus plotting – time series, this is an important issue for us....

Diamonds and Faceting are a Data Scientist’s best Friends

In the last post of this series, we took a first look at strategies for the effective visualization and exploration of data patterns within large data sets. Namely, we examined ways to overcome overplotting, with a focus on a two-dimensional feature space defined by two continuous features. However, oftentimes we want to visualize the distribution of data across several...
