We have seen how to create basic charts in Dataiku DSS. We can also create paneled charts and vibrant animations.
Consider the Haiku T-shirts project in the gallery. After the orders data has been enriched with customer data and then prepared for analysis, we are ready to visualize it.
We’ll start from a basic line chart that shows the total sales (y-axis) by month of the year (x-axis) and separate lines by the category of T-shirt sold. This is a useful way to look at the patterns of purchases over the course of a year, but we’d also like to see the breakdown by gender.
One way to see the breakdown by gender is by paneling, or creating subcharts. Creating a paneled chart is as simple as adding gender as the column to define subcharts.
This is a useful way to look at the breakdown by gender, but now we’d like to gain further insight by looking at how the monthly patterns of purchases change from year-to-year.
A video below goes through the content of this section.
One way to see the year-to-year change is to animate the chart. This is done in Dataiku DSS by:
You can set the speed of playback, pause the playback, step through years individually at your own pace, or select a specific year to examine.
You can view the final animated, paneled chart on the gallery.
