Interactive graphics: exemplified with real data applications.

Malik WA, Unlü A - Front Psychol (2011)

Bottom Line: Graphics are widely used in modern applied statistics because they are easy to create, convenient to use, and they can present information effectively.Static plots do not allow interacting with graphics.The benefits and strengths of interactive graphics for data exploration and data quality analyses are illustrated systematically with three complex real datasets.

ABSTRACT
Graphics are widely used in modern applied statistics because they are easy to create, convenient to use, and they can present information effectively. Static plots do not allow interacting with graphics. User interaction, on the other hand, is crucial in exploring data. It gives flexibility and control. One can experiment with the data and the displays. One can investigate the data from different perspectives to produce views that are easily interpretable and informative. In this paper, we try to explain interactive graphics and advocate their use as a practical tool. The benefits and strengths of interactive graphics for data exploration and data quality analyses are illustrated systematically with three complex real datasets.

Figure 10: Scatterplot of Potassium by Magnetics.

Mentions: The bivariate distributions also reveal some interesting features. In Figure 10, strong negative association between potassium and magnetics is visible. Outliers are also identifiable here.
