Introduction Exploratory data analysis (EDA) is an approach to data analysis to summarize the main characteristics of data. It can be performed using various methods, among which data visualization takes a great place. The idea of EDA is to recognize what information can data give us beyond the formal modeling or hypothesis testing task. In other words, if initially we don’t have at all or there are not enough priori ideas about...
