The Structured Desktop

ViSta's Desktop has WorkMaps, GuideMaps, SpreadPlots, Datasheets and other features designed to structure and assist the statistical analyst.

Here is an example of a ViSta desktop (a portion has been snipped away to fit the web page):

ViSta's Structured Desktop has:

  • WorkMaps that visually summarize your data analysis session.
    In the WorkMap shown on the left, the analyst has loaded in a dataset (JobPrestige), has performed two regression analyses on the dataset, has obtained a new data object from the original one (JobSubset) which has served as the basis for a third regression analysis.

  • DataSheets that display the data and support data editing and entry.

  • Text windows that show statistics, variable and observation names, help, etc.
