Twelve years ago, Unwin (1992) wrote “How interactive graphics will revolutionize statistical practice” [The Statistician, 4, 365-369]. Well, has it? Has interactive graphics revolutionized statistical practice? At that time Data Desk was the prime commercially available package for dynamic statistical graphics. Since then dynamic graphics have become increasingly available in many statistical and visualisation packages, and some are even available, or easy to set up, in spreadsheets like Excel. Examples of using dynamic graphics in statistical consulting will be given. We’ll gain insight into some old data and some new data, including microarray data.
