Setting up a Correlation Visualisation
Correlation Visualisations are useful when to plot the link between two things. Use them to answer the question, is there any relationship between X and Y?
- Create a new Visualisation by clicking the Add new button at the top-right.
- Choose the Correlation option, and then click the orange checkmark button.
Note: In this article, the example used will be creating a Correlation to plot the link between users who open Curatr objects, and then go on to complete them.
Configuring your Correlation Axes
- Make sure that the Axes tab is selected.
- In the Group by section, you can choose how you want your data to be grouped in the visualisation – following the example, you would set People here.
- In the X Axis section, choose one of the data points you want to plot – following the example, you would set Total unique number of.. and Statements.
- Now, open the Query Builder by using the Query toggle, expand the + Did filter, and choose the opened verb.
- Then, in the Y Axis section, set the other data point which you want to plot – following the example, you would set Total unique number of.. and Statements here too.
- Now, open the Query Builder by using the Query toggle, expand the + Did filter, and choose the completed verb.
Configuring your Correlation Series
- Make sure that the Series tab is selected.
- You can use the Description field to give the Visualisation a short description. This will also help you to identify it whenever you add it to a Widget.
- Here, you can also use the + Add query button to add a new Series, with its own Query Builder, which you can use to select and plot extra data series on the same graph.
Note: If you need help with using the Query Builder, please see the Query Builder Overview and the other articles in that section.
Your Visualisation should now look something like this:
