We recently announced a new update to our SPSS Statistics new user interface. In this blog, we will dive into more details about the new chart types that our users could create using the updated new UI.
To recall from our latest announcement, we have introduced new chart types to the chart builder (Relationship, Treemap, Heatmap, Word cloud, 3D, Dual Y-axis, Scatterplot matrix, Map).
Now, let’s see what each of these look like:
2. Treemap chart – A treemap chart provides a hierarchical view of your data and makes it easy to spot patterns.
3. Heatmap chart – Heat map charts present data where the individual values contained in a matrix are represented as colors.
4. Word Cloud – A word cloud is an image composed of words used in a particular text or subject, in which the size of each word indicates its frequency or importance.
5. 3D Scatter – 3D scatter plots are used to plot data points on three axes in the attempt to show the relationship between three variables.
6. Dual Y-axis – When the data values in a chart vary widely from data series to data series, or when you have mixed types of data, you can plot one or more data series on a secondary vertical (Y) axis.
7. Scatterplot matrix – Scatter plot matrices are a good way to determine if linear correlations exist between multiple variables.
If you want to try these chart types yourself, please follow these instructions:
