Introduction to graphical multivariate EDA

As you may have guessed, multivariate EDA involves more than two variables. Here is where you will definitely get creative. A great deal of practice and effort is needed, to use the visualization and numerical techniques we've talked about so far in novel and interesting ways.

Common multivariate EDA techniques include:

  • Coloring a scatter plot by categorical feature
