Newsroom Example

Example of statistics tool in Vizall's data cleaner
Vizall analyses spreadsheets to show the mean, median maximum and more in a column with numbers, or most frequently used words in a text analysis.

Crime journalist Matt downloads the latest crime dataset showing different types of crimes for the latest financial year broken down by suburb.

This is a big dataset and he notices spelling mistakes in some of the suburbs and badly formatted offence dates. It would take him hours to fix it up and get any useful insights from it if he did it manually.

With Vizall, Matt can upload the data and quickly fix the errors in the automated data cleaner, open up the stats tool and get some quick insights about the data.

He discovers the most common crimes across the city are theft, property damage and serious assault without injury (see the circled section of the screenshot above). Scrolling down reveals the full ranked list.

In less than 10 minutes, he has preliminary facts to start building out a story. He can then quickly and simple turn his data into an interactive map to share with his readers.
