Visual Analytics presentation - David Edwards

Version 1

    This is a presentation given by David Edwards, ACT at the first Eastern Iowa Tableau User Group.


    The content focuses on why Visual Analytics - in contrast to Statistical Analytics - is a useful approach to take when investigating your data. Clearly, synthesizing the two approaches is needed in order to achieve the best results, and Visual Analytics is very accessible to many audiences, and leverages power of our innate Visual Processing systems.


    Examples of where statistical analysis may fall short are presented (Anscombe's Quartet), as well as examples of successful Visual Analytics presentations.
