## Selected Columns for Data Analysis

DONE ON THE WEBSITE

The first dashboard produced consists of three graphs depicting the Total Expenses Plotted against Market and State, Profit Plotted against Market and State and Sales Plotted against Market and State. The graphs has been plotted with the help of column chart, line chart and Gantt chart respectively. The colors used are of the same hue but of different composition. This makes them all related to each other but keep themselves apart from the other graphs as well. The first graph of the dashboard, Total Expenses Plotted against Market and State shows the total amount of expenses that is incurred by the company for the production of the different products and to sell them in the respective market area and the respective state market of the country. On an overview, it can be said that the west market produces the maximum amount of expenses from the products. The south market can be said to produce the least amount of expenses for the company as a whole. Looking from the individual state wise analysis the state of New Hampshire produces the least amount of expenses and California on the other hand produces the highest amount of expenses over the period of two years. The second graph of the dashboard, Profit Plotted against Market and State shows the sum of profit, which is collected by the company from the respective market size and the states of the country. The highest amount of profit is collected form the state of California. This shows that the people of California uses the products of the company more than any other state in the United States of America. The least amount of profit is collected from the state of New Mexico. Almost below the mark of 1000. All other states can be said to help the company collect a generous amount of profit. The third graph of the dashboard is the Sales Plotted against Market and State, which goes on to show the plotting of the total sales collected by the company from the states of the United States of America. The highest sale records has been recorded in the state of California. This can be easily concluded based on the amount of profit which the company is able to collect from the location the sales was to shoot his high. The least amount of sales has been recorded in the state of New Hampshire where it still shows hope of going upwards in the future. On an overview, it can be said that the south market has the lowest sale of the products among the four markets.

## Dashboard 1: Total Expenses, Profit, and Sales Plotted against Market and State

The second dashboard created consists of two graphs Profit Plotted Against Products and Total Expenses Plotted Against Products. The first graph has been plotted with the help of a green coloured bar chart and the second graph has been composed with the help of a red coloured heat map. The process of understanding heat map is with the help of the saturation of colour in the boxes on the map. The boxes are sized and stacked according to the values and coloured accordingly. The darkest boxes are colour in this way due to the fact that they have the highest amount of value. The boxes are coloured in a single hue with the variation in the saturation of the colour. The first graph shows the plotting of the profit which has been collected from the sale of the products around the 20 states. The company would analyse this data to understand their strong points in the market. The highest profit gainer is the Columbian coffee. However, the value of the green tea product came as a surprise as this product can be considered the healthiest of all the drinks with the lowest profit collected over the period of two years. The value is so much low that the value has become negative in nature. The company should analyse their strength in the market with the help of their profit collected from the products being sold. The second graph shows the plotting of the total amount of expenses which the company is putting in in the production of the different products. The darkest of the boxes is of the Columbian coffee and the lightest is of the regular espresso. From the previous graph and this graph it can be said that the company is making the right move in putting in extra effort and making the product of Columbian coffee the best in the market. However the expense behind the product of green tea is high the profit collected is lower than zero.

The third dashboard which has been created consists of four charts: Budget Cost of Goods Plotted against Products, Budget Margin Plotted against Products, Budget Profit Plotted against Products and Budget Sales Plotted against Products. The charts have been selected to show the forecasting of the company with respect to the products. This means that the company is determining for the future the amount of sale they will be producing for the products they produce. The charts have been designed with the help of column chart, area chart, heat map and Gantt chart. The process of understanding heat map is with the help of the saturation of colour in the boxes on the map. The darkest boxes are colour in this way due to the fact that they have the highest amount of value. The boxes are coloured in a single hue with the variation in the saturation of the colour. From the first chart it can be determined that the Columbian coffee will be the top most priority for the company’s future in terms of making the cost of the product. Alongside this the regular espresso has been found to contribute the least in the prediction for the cost of goods category. For the budget margin chart it can be again seen that that the Columbian coffee has the highest value and the regular espresso with the least value. A similar trend is also seen in the budget profit for the products in case of Columbian coffee. However the least in this case is green tea which is similar to the previously found profit which was the lowest for green tea. Again the previous trend returns in case of the fourth chart od Columbian coffee at the highest and the regular espresso at the lowest pit of the chart in case of plotting of the predicted sales for  the products. This similar following of the trend shows that the company has a determined mind set which is to follow the product trend in this chart and make the best profit possible form the market conditions.

The fourth dashboard consists of the graphs depicting Budget Cost of Goods Plotted against Locations, Budget Margin of Goods Plotted against Locations, Budget Profit of Goods Plotted against Locations and Budget Sales of Goods Plotted against Locations. This dashboard has been developed following a unique rule of plotting the data on a geographic map which makes the visualization interactive in nature. As the states which has been used in the data set is from the United States of America, the dashboard is showing the chart for location of United States of America only. The colouring trend is similar to that of the heat map. A single hue of colour is used in the map sections and the saturation of the colour is based on the values of the locations which is being plotted. For the first chart it can be seen that the state of California has the highest budget for the cost of goods. The location being tropic and a coastal area in nature the goods required for the production of the products require a large amount of investment. Other than that the states in the middle of the country is seen to be having a medium hue suggesting that they have lower amount to be incurred for the cost of goods. In the next chart it can be again seen that the state of California has the highest amount of margin of goods cost for the production line. The lowest can be seen to be in the state of New Mexico. The third chart being a heat map shows the profit of the goods and products on the states to be the highest in Illinois. California closely follows the state of Illinois. Again the lowest producer of the profit margin is the state of New Mexico. The last chart is of a geographic chart which shows the prediction of the sale of the goods and the products in the locations. The darkest of the colour seems to be in California and the lightest in New Mexico. The similar trend in the budget prediction in the countries shows the integrity that is followed in doing a business.
