Boxplot Chart

Overview

Boxplots are a standardized way of displaying the distribution of data based on a five number summary (minimum, first quartile (Q1), median, third quartile (Q3), and maximum). They give a good indication of how the values in the data are spread out.

Note that for choosing the option precalculated data in the second configuration field, all boxplot necessary values (Minimum, Maximum, Median, 1st Quartile, 3rd Quartile and Mean) need to be at hand. It's possible to provide such information using the Heuristic Summaries processor.


Histogram

Overview

A histogram is a plot that lets you discover, and show, the underlying frequency distribution (shape) of a set of continuous data. This allows the inspection of the data for its underlying distribution (e.g., normal distribution), outliers, skewness, etc.
