In data analysis (investigation) projects what of the methods below do you use the most during the process?
- Visual explore data to find meaningful information.
- Knowing what you are looking for, build the best visualization to deliver the message.
It depends on the goal of the project or the stage of the process, you will say.
Of course, analyzing data is a complex process, we (might) use a mix of both of them but question stays: do we spend most of the time to get significant conclusions by using visual exploratory features or we try to fit our conclusions in the most effective visualization way?
