Visual Analytics for Investigating and Processing Data

Abstract

In this chapter, we discuss how visual analytics techniques can support you in investigating and understanding the properties of your data and in conducting common data processing tasks. We consider several examples of possible problems in data and how they may manifest in visual representations, discuss where and why data quality issues can appear, and introduce a number of elementary data processing operations and computational techniques that help, in combination with visualisation, understand data characteristics and detect abnormalities.
