What is Statsplorer?

Statsplorer (formerly known as VisiStat) is a software tool that allows users to do statistical analysis by interacting with visualizations. It guides the user to select appropriate statistical analysis tasks based on her research questions. It also prevents common statistical analysis mistakes and promotes understanding by collocating appropriate visualizations with statistical analysis results. Our user studies showed that Statsplorer helps novices to perform statistical analysis and learn about the analysis process.

 

The Team

Statsplorer is a Master's thesis by Krishna Subramanian. It is supervised by Chat Wacharamanotham, M.Sc. and Prof. Jan Borchers. It is funded in part by the German B-IT foundation. A follow-up Bachlor's thesis by Sarah Völkel focuses on evaluating how Statsplorer helps novices in learning statistics. Marty Pye is extending Statsplorer to Bayesian statistics.
