Basics for Using Graph Builder

Presenter: Christian Stopp

Building and Modifying Simple Graphs Interactively

See how to:

  • Build a Graph Builder map with baseball locations and drill-down graphlets
  • Open a table and start constructing a graph 
    • Locate main areas: recall, red triangle,variables, display options, title, legend, drop zones and jitter
    • Understand how top icons change graph and their relationship to types of variables in graph (continuous, continuous and categorical, more then one categorical)
  • Build graphs for one continuous variable (line graph, bar graph, area graph, box plot, histogram, scatterplot); use row markers to display symbols 
  • Locate related options JMP offers based on changing graph type; explore bar graphs 
  • Generate box plots and histograms and compare them to scatterplots 
  • Use PC SHIFT key to add second graph type and generate statistics for both graphs 
  • R-click on graph to select context-related options; modify axis settings and save them to data table to apply to all new data added to that column variable; use the up/down and sideways hands to modify displayed axis value range  
  • Add second variable to graph 
    • Interactively use smoother and confidence band options
    • Fit best and other types of lines
    • Show confidence bands and related statistics
    • Create density ellipse and violin (contour) plot
  • Use drop zones to examine how two variables relate to another two variables 
    • Use and compare group, wrap, overlay, color and size
  • Use Done button to finalize graph, remove option panels from display and and save script to data table 
  • Modify and preview legend interactively; add markers
