(13 min) While Spotfire can read data directly from Excel file types, there is an expectation regarding how the data in an Excel worksheet should be formatted in order to make it appropriate for analysis in TIBCO Spotfire.
(7 min) Consider the implications of storing a path to the data source for each data table within your analysis, rather than the actual data from that table.
(8 min) When establishing a data connection, you have the option to keep the data external, in-database, or import each data table for in-memory analysis.
(12 min) Learn how to sort cells, bars, lines, and sectors based on values in visualizations, including: reversing a sort order or customizing a sort order.
(8 min) Learn all of the ways to mark data using rectangles, lasso shapes, and keystrokes. Then consider all the many reasons you may wish to mark data.

(6 min) There are a variety of ways to adjust visualization properties; the most comprehensive adjustment options exist in the Properties dialog.
(6 min) Examine the distribution of continuous variables by binning, performing counts, applying a Gaussian Curve Fit, and relating to categorical variables.
(5 min) Scatter Plots represent variables by X & Y position. Add more variables to your Scatter Plot by changing color, shape and size.
(6 min) Examine the density of data displayed in a scatter plot, using transparency or settings which bin and color data to create a map of data density.
(8 min) Learn how to organize data hierarchically in an interactive treemap visualization which relates values by color and size of nested rectangles.
(13 min) Learn how to use Geocoding to relate geographic features from your data to separate data tables containing the coordinates which determine the position of data.
