Configuring Visualizations

Visualizations are the key to analyzing data in TIBCO Spotfire. A variety of visualization types can be used to provide the best view of the data.

Overview

Different types of visualizations can be shown simultaneously. They can be linked to each other, and are updated dynamically when the corresponding filters are manipulated. Visualizations can be trellised to show similarities or differences between different categories in the data. Visualizations can also be made to reflect many dimensions of data by letting values control visual attributes such as size, color, shape, etc.

The Spotfire user interface

The following sections describe the different visualization types in TIBCO Spotfire and give an introduction to how you can interact with them.

  • Visualization Types
    A variety of visualization types can be used to provide the best view of the data.
  • Interacting with Visualizations
    By interacting with the visualizations you can see different aspects of your data and see details on the interesting items.
  • Interaction between Visualizations
    Visualizations in an analysis can be linked to each other, allowing you to drill down into your data in multiple steps.
  • Hierarchies in Visualizations
    Creating hierarchies on an axis in a visualization is a quick way to group the data in the visualization or to control the level of detail in the visualization.
