Did you know that there are approximately 1,300 breweries in Germany producing over 5,000 brands of beer? With enough beer options to drink a different German beer every day for 15 years, we want to use JMP to understand the density of breweries in different German states.
In this presentation, you will learn how we used a REST API to bring German brewery data into JMP and then enhance it with geographic data to create interactive, density maps in JMP. REST API data requests can be executed using JMP’s HTTP Request, with the data often formatted as a JSON file. This JSON file can be imported into JMP using JMP 15’s newest feature, Import Wizards. JMP 15 has built in mapping tools that will allow us to show brewery density in Germany. These findings will then be published to JMP Live, JMP's collaborative analytics software for sharing interactive reports.
