Legacy Platforms

The following legacy platforms are deprecated. A deprecated platform is an older platform that contains features that can be accessed in a newer platform. The charts and plots in this appendix are all available in the Graph Builder platform. These legacy platforms might not be available in future releases of JMP.

Treemaps

Treemaps are useful for observing patterns among groups that have many levels. Use treemaps when your data contains many categories, to visualize many groups.

Tip: To create a treemap, consider using Graph Builder. See Treemap.

Launch the Treemap platform by selecting Graph > Legacy > Treemap.

When you click OK in the launch window, a treemap in Graph Builder is created by default. To produce a report in the legacy Treemap platform, you must first deselect the Use Graph Builder platform preference under Files > Preferences > Platforms > Treemap. For documentation on the legacy Treemap platform, see the Legacy Platforms section of the JMP 15.2 Help.

Charts

The Chart platform on the Graph menu charts continuous variables versus categorical variables. The continuous variables are summarized for each categorical level.

If you want to make a plot of individual data points (rather than summaries of data points), we recommend using an overlay plot instead.

Tip: To create a chart, consider using Graph Builder. See Example of an Overlaid Histogram and Ridgeline Chart.

Launch the Chart platform by selecting Graph > Legacy > Chart.

When you click OK in the launch window, a chart in Graph Builder is created by default. To produce a report in the legacy Chart platform, you must first deselect the Use Graph Builder platform preference under Files > Preferences > Platforms > Chart. For documentation on the legacy Chart platform, see the Legacy Platforms section of the JMP 15.2 Help.

Overlay Plots

The Overlay Plot option produces plots of a single X column and one or more numeric Ys and does not accept non-numeric values for the y-axis.

Tip: To create an overlay plot, consider using the Overlay zone in Graph Builder. See Example of an Overlaid Histogram and Ridgeline Chart.

Launch Overlay Plot by selecting Graph > Legacy > Overlay Plot.

When you click OK in the launch window, an overlay plot in Graph Builder is created by default. To produce a report in the legacy Overlay Plot platform, you must first deselect the Use Graph Builder platform preference under Files > Preferences > Platforms > Overlay Plot. For documentation on the legacy Overlay Plot platform, see the Legacy Platforms section of the JMP 15.2 Help.
