JMP 12 introduces the expression column for data tables. This new feature allows us to include objects such as pictures, matrices, lists and JSL scripts into data tables. But what do we do with this newly found power? On April 27, 2011, a monster tornado ripped through the heart of Tuscaloosa, AL (USA). Loss of life and an estimated $2.4 billion in economic damage resulted. We use this disaster and subsequent recovery to explore the usefulness of the expression column in creating greater understanding of our data and the world around us.
