Exploring Your Data
Nathan Yau in FlowingData points to some teachers of information visualization banning the phrase 'exploratory data analysis' in dataviz applications. As pointing to purpose-less interaction with your data. Well maybe as the final goal of a school project. But as a practitioner have always found value when that goal led to a structure to meet real value propositions. And it also helps non-technical management participate in the process. A quibbling over terms. Call it 'Exploratory data value analysis' if you like.
