Meaningful Graphs

ISBN: 0986054909
Release Date: 2014-06-01
Genre: Computers

Meaningful Graphs is a concise and practical go-to guide for creating charts in Excel (r) that clearly and accurately tell the story in your data. It incorporates (a) explanations of the graph design principles of the experts (Tufte, Few, Robbins, Zelazny, and others), (b) the software steps necessary to incorporate these principles into Excel (r) charts, and (c) chart-related discussions of quality improvement (including Pareto charts), statistics (including run charts and correlations), and the use of graphs in PowerPoint (r) presentations (including chart animation). Also included are numerous "Tips" and "In Practice" examples drawn from over 35 years of working with data in healthcare settings. Coverage begins with highlighting the importance of knowing the story in your data and general principles of chart design (e.g., chartjunk, the use of color, consideration of three dimensional charts) and then proceeds to examine and create the five major chart types (column, bar, line, pie, scatter). This is followed by considerations of the pros and cons of each of the six less frequently employed chart types. There are over 120 graphs in full color plus tables and illustrations. Discussions of the most useful chart types include examples with accompanying data to facilitate practice. While illustrations are especially tailored for healthcare professionals (physicians, nurses, patient safety, quality improvement staff, executives, and managers) both in their work setting and in their academic preparation, the principles of graph design and the Excel (r) techniques required to incorporate these principles apply equally well in other settings. The latter include other industries and academic programs, including those leading to degrees in business administration (MBA), public health (MPH), and public administration (MPA). If you follow the advice in this book, the graphs you create for reports, presentations, posters, or publications will be more informative and more easily understo

A succinct and highly readable guide to creating effective graphs The right graph can be a powerful tool for communicating information, improving a presentation, or conveying your point in print. If your professional endeavors call for you to present data graphically, here's a book that can help you do it more effectively. Creating More Effective Graphs gives you the basic knowledge and techniques required to choose and create appropriate graphs for a broad range of applications. Using real-world examples everyone can relate to, the author draws on her years of experience in graphical data analysis and presentation to highlight some of today's most effective methods. In clear, concise language, the author answers such common questions as: What constitutes an effective graph for communicating data? How do I choose the type of graph that is best for my data? How do I recognize a misleading graph? Why do some graphs have logarithmic scales? In no time you'll graduate from bar graphs and pie charts to graphs that illuminate data like: Dot plots Box plots Scatterplots Linked micromaps Trellis displays Mosaic plots Month plots Scatterplot matrices . . . most of them requiring only inexpensive, easily downloadable software. Whether you're a novice at graphing or already use graphs in your work but want to improve them, Creating More Effective Graphs will help you develop the kind of clear, accurate, and well-designed graphs that will allow your data to be understood.

Release Date: 2013-07-15
Genre: Business & Economics

Discover Novel and Insightful Knowledge from Data Represented as a Graph Practical Graph Mining with R presents a "do-it-yourself" approach to extracting interesting patterns from graph data. It covers many basic and advanced techniques for the identification of anomalous or frequently recurring patterns in a graph, the discovery of groups or clusters of nodes that share common patterns of attributes and relationships, the extraction of patterns that distinguish one category of graphs from another, and the use of those patterns to predict the category of new graphs. Hands-On Application of Graph Data Mining Each chapter in the book focuses on a graph mining task, such as link analysis, cluster analysis, and classification. Through applications using real data sets, the book demonstrates how computational techniques can help solve real-world problems. The applications covered include network intrusion detection, tumor cell diagnostics, face recognition, predictive toxicology, mining metabolic and protein-protein interaction networks, and community detection in social networks. Develops Intuition through Easy-to-Follow Examples and Rigorous Mathematical Foundations Every algorithm and example is accompanied with R code. This allows readers to see how the algorithmic techniques correspond to the process of graph data analysis and to use the graph mining techniques in practice. The text also gives a rigorous, formal explanation of the underlying mathematics of each technique. Makes Graph Mining Accessible to Various Levels of Expertise Assuming no prior knowledge of mathematics or data mining, this self-contained book is accessible to students, researchers, and practitioners of graph data mining. It is suitable as a primary textbook for graph mining or as a supplement to a standard data mining course. It can also be used as a reference for researchers in computer, information, and computational science as well as a handy guide for data analytics practitioners.
