John Tukey said, “The greatest value of a picture is when it forces us to notice what we never expected to see.” Arguably, JMP’s preeminent feature is the ease with which its users can quickly and easily create informative graphics that allow us to see what we may or may not have expected. The ability to create informative and decision-worthy graphics is especially important currently, when data are increasing in complexity and volume at a rate that is difficult to comprehend. In an article in The Economist(February 2010), it was estimated that mankind will create 1,200 exabytes (10^18) of digital data this year. The data deluge is in full swing! The visual tools provided by JMP facilitate our effort to extract information from data, but customization is often needed when faced with complexity and volumes of data. With the additional benefit of JMP’s Scripting Language (JSL), the visual analytics can be improved for the problem at hand and our work made more effective. This paper will present examples that demonstrate the use of JSL to enhance JMP’s visual analytics and streamline the analysis process.
