Use curated datasets or provide custom data
Preassembled curated data sets enable immediate investigation into country-level similarities or differences. The ability to upload your own data sets as spreadsheet workbooks makes it easy to perform custom analysis.
Interactive visualization enables user-driven exploration
Users can explore the country clusters generated by the tool to gain an understanding of the metrics that are the key drivers of similarities and differences.
Focus on longitudinal trajectories at state, country, or region-level
A unique feature of this tool is the clustering based on longitudinal data, not single numeric metrics. Users can explore the metrics that drive the clusters and the individual trajectories for those metrics.
Include geographical distance in segmentation
Users can begin with highly weighting neighboring localities and gradually decrease the importance until only time series data is considered. This helps new users interpret time series similarities for regional events.
Segmentation-metric correlation analysis
Users can explore how the segmentation that results from the selected metric may result in a distinct separation for new metrics that weren’t used as inputs during clustering.
