Weekly Question #6: Complete by March 30, 2017
Leave your response as a comment on this post by the beginning of class on March 30, 2017. Remember, it only needs to be three or four sentences. For these weekly questions, I’m mainly interested in your opinions, not so much particular “facts” from the class!If you sign in using your AccessNet ID and password you won’t have to fill in the name, email and captcha fields when you leave your comment.
Here is the question:
Take a look at the SpotCrime website. Type in a few zip codes to see crime statistics in different areas. Would you consider this more an example of data analytics/data mining as we’ve discussed it this week, or more like the OLAP/Pivot Table analysis we have been doing over the last week or so? Explain your reasoning.
