Box Plots

Full Screen

A box-and-whisker plot uses simple glyphs that summarize a quantitative distribution with five standard statistics: the smallest value, lower quartile, median, upper quartile, and largest value. This summary approach allows the viewer to easily recognize differences between distributions. Data from the Michelson–Morley experiment. Implementation contributed by Jason Davies. This example periodically randomizes the values to demonstrate transitions.
