SONAR: Visualize your training, apply and prediction data with Data Explorer
Data Explorer lets you visually explore and gain insights about your model training data as you prepare it for analysis, as well as your Apply data and prediction results in Kraken. Based on Microsoft SandDance, Data Explorer provides ease of use for data visualizations, pattern identification and trends in your training data. By creating and using easy-to-consume views, the insights from Data Explorer help you build modeling scenarios based on evidence, identify outliers, test modeling hypotheses and dig deeper into surface explanations.
Accessing Data Explorer
Accessing Data Explorer for training data: After selecting your training dataset for a new model OR after clicking the "REFINE" option for existing models, click the “three bars” bar chart icon in the upper right, near the pink “Analyze” button. Use the tabs and controls on the left to select and customize the visualization(s) of your choice.
Accessing Data Explorer for apply data: After selecting your apply dataset, click the "Preview" grid icon on the right-hand side of the dataset list, then click the “three bars” bar chart icon in the upper right, near the pink “Predict” button. Use the tabs and controls on the left to select and customize the visualization(s) of your choice.
Accessing Data Explorer for prediction data: Click on your prediction or Scenarios card, then click on the "EXPLORE" option, then click the “three bars” bar chart icon in the upper right. Use the tabs and controls on the left to select and customize the visualization(s) of your choice.
Using Data Explorer
Chart tab: This is the default tab when accessing Data Explorer. Use the buttons on the left to select the type of visualization you would like. Use the Column Mapping options to choose:
Data bin size
Chart color palette tab: Includes preset color schemes and color binning options.
Data browser tab: Browse data values for every column, one row at a time.
Select-by-search tab: Choose data to include in your visualizations, and group that data as desired.
Snapshot tab: Create snapshots of your visualizations for easy reference of different views while you are in Data Explorer.

Important Notes about Data Explorer
You can show or hide Data Pipeline while in Data Explorer. You can show or hide the Data Pipeline window by clicking the “curvy arrows” button to the left of the “Analyze” button in the upper right of the Kraken screen. Any filters or other changes you make to your Data Pipeline will be included in any visualizations in Data Explorer.
Data Explorer visualizations and snapshots are not static. If you leave Data Explorer by switching to Data View or Schema View, any work performed in Data Explorer will be lost. If you are planning to explore your training data in detail, it is recommended that you remain in Data Explorer to avoid losing any changes you make to your visualizations.
Data Explorer visualizations do not impact your Data Pipeline actions. If you apply filters or other visualizations in Data Explorer, those changes do not create or modify any Data Pipeline actions.
