Apache Superset Quick Start Guide

By: Shashank Shekhar

Overview of this book

Apache Superset is a modern, open source, enterprise-ready business intelligence (BI) web application. With the help of this book, you will see how Superset integrates with popular databases like Postgres, Google BigQuery, Snowflake, and MySQL. You will learn to create real time data visualizations and dashboards on modern web browsers for your organization using Superset. First, we look at the fundamentals of Superset, and then get it up and running. You'll go through the requisite installation, configuration, and deployment. Then, we will discuss different columnar data types, analytics, and the visualizations available. You'll also see the security tools available to the administrator to keep your data safe. You will learn how to visualize relationships as graphs instead of coordinates on plain orthogonal axes. This will help you when you upload your own entity relationship dataset and analyze the dataset in new, different ways. You will also see how to analyze geographical regions by working with location data. Finally, we cover a set of tutorials on dashboard designs frequently used by analysts, business intelligence professionals, and developers.

Running the query for extracting the data of oranges imported in different forms

In the SQL Editor inside SQL Lab, I wrote a query to list the different forms of oranges. We can focus on the effect of seasonality by only selecting fresh oranges and fresh bananas in subsequent charts.

We will make a bubble chart to compare the import value of oranges to bananas. Bubble charts also support visualization of a third data dimension using Bubble Size. Since we are interested in comparing the import...
