2015 December – Dear Data Challenge

ANALYSIS

December’s challenge was “Christmas Music” for Dear Data / Chain Data.

Here is a run down of my journey during the month:

WORKING

I calculated the index using min max difference, as follows:

And then created a “Parallel Coordinate Plot

Followed by “hand drawing” it, I only drew the points, excluding the lines for clutter:
