The "first" step to look at your data is to plot parameters against each other. This is an easy way to identify trends, find outliers and identify low quality measurements.
- Just select the Plot View from the right menu underneath the Project name.
- Select the type of plot and adjust the Settings.
- Enter a plot title if you don't like the auto-suggestion.
- Click on Plot to close the dialog and show the plot.
Scatter - Plots
- You have a couple options for scatter plots.
- Pick the Parameters for both axis.
Note: Only Markers allows you to select the Marker Size and Marker Color based on Parameters.
Tip: Adding Marker Size and / or Color will help to emphasize differences and trends, as well as show relationships between Parameters.
Average - Plots
- There are three types of average plots (Bar charts).
- If needed you can display the standard deviation or error as well.
- Pick the Parameter you would like to average
- You can group the averages by a Category. Currently only the project questions are available as categories.
Histogram - Plots
- There is only one type of histogram (Area Chart).
- Pick the Parameter from the dropdown menu that you would like to explore.
- The number of bins is calculated automatically for the minimum and maximum and number of values. The bins are the same for every series.
- Zoom in: by drawing a rectangle while holding down the left mouse button.
- Zoom out: do a left double click or click on .
Save a Plot
- Select Save from above the plot and save the Plot as an image (.png) or the data (.csv or .txt).
- Select Analysis from above the plot to fit different linear regressions to your plot (only for scatter plots).
- There will be one regression line per series.
- Click on and select activity log to bring up the activity log showing the associated equations.
- Click on a marker of a Scatter Plot to view the measurement details.
