Data Exploration | Nobel Prize Dataset

In this webinar, we illustrate techniques for exploring data in DataGraph. Learn how to mine data using pivoting, sorting, and filtering. We use a dataset on Nobel prize winners as a use case. The dataset contains over 100 years of data on prize winners along with attributes such as gender and country.

Quick Graph

If you’re short on time, there is one section that is a must watch – Quick Graph (YouTube Link – 03:02). In this webinar, QuickGraph is used for exploring columns of text data. All you do it click the header of a column to select the data. Then hit the space bar. Voila!


The data and graphs used in the webinar are available in DataGraph using File > On-line Examples. The file contains several graphs created using the Pivot command, such as the one shown here.
