Mathematica, developed and maintained by Wolfram Research, is a trusted and popular tool used to analyze and visualize data.
This book begins by introducing you to the Mathematica environment and the basics of dataset loading and cleaning. You will then learn about the different kinds of widely used datasets so that you are comfortable with the later chapters. Then, in the subsequent chapters, you will learn about time series, scientific, statistical, information, and map visualizations. Each topic is demonstrated by walking you through an example project. Along the way, the dynamic interactivity and graphics packages are also introduced. Finally, the book ends with a brief discussion of color maps and aesthetics issues.
Using this book, you will learn how to build visualizations from scratch, quickly and efficiently.
