Adding Value to Analysis – Trends, Distributions, and Forecasting


We covered a wide variety of techniques in this chapter. We looked at sheet swapping, dynamic dashboards, using sets to answer complex questions, some advanced mapping techniques, including supplementing geographic data, adjusting map options, and using custom images. Finally, we looked at how to use background images to create unique and useful visualizations.

There is no way to cover every possible technique. Instead, the idea is to demonstrate some of what can be accomplished using a few advanced techniques. The examples in this chapter are built on the foundations laid in the rest of the book. From here, you will be able to creatively modify and combine techniques in new and innovative ways to solve problems and achieve incredible results.
