JMP 13 Essential Graphing

Book Description

Start with JMP 13 Essential Graphing to find the ideal graph for your data. The book begins with Graph Builder, a quick way to create graphs in a drag-and-drop window. Line charts, ellipses, box plots, and maps are just a few of the graphs available in Graph Builder. Find information about creating other types of plots: bubble plots, scatterplots, parallel plots, and more.
