Visualizing Data using JMP

In this hands-on workshop, we will explore how to make effective graphs and charts using JMP, a menu-based, user-friendly statistical software. We will cover how to use graphing techniques to perform exploratory data analysis and how to carry out some of the best practices for data visualization as covered in our Visualizing Data Workshop. Several data sets of varying complexity will be supplied to illustrate specific data visualization techniques.
