Within any set of data, we may examine how that data groups together. This can allow us to identify missing rows, find unusual patterns, or develop advanced analytical techniques. At its simplest, being able to locate gaps and islands will tell us about missing data values. As we delve deeper, it will allow us to identify streaks, droughts, or anomalous events worthy of further investigation.
