Visualizing historical biomarker data with JMP

I shared in my previous post that I scoured my baby book and tracking notebooks and requested various medical records to gather historical information about my weight fluctuations over the years. I used this data to construct JMP graphs with annotations and pinned hover labels containing pictures (thanks to the

Visualizing holiday food log patterns

Creating graphs of muscle quality and body fat in Graph Builder

In my previous post, I shared several Graph Builder graphs of the muscle quality and body fat percentage data I’ve been getting from my Skulpt Aim. However, since the post was already long, I didn’t have a chance to include any instructions on how to recreate those graphs. In case

These new devices and the data from them have brought me greater opportunities to think more deeply about measurement systems. When I begin using a new self-tracking device, I have the same

Learning about new self-tracking technology at QS15

I recently attended the QS15 Quantified Self Conference and Expo in San Francisco. This three-day event brought self-tracking technology providers together with users who are actively collecting and analyzing their own data. The conference is organized by QS Labs, a Bay area company founded by Kevin Kelly and Gary Wolf. These two Wired

Using my muscle map as a selection filter for workout data

JMP 12 introduced the ability to create a selection filter, or a graph that filters other graphs in a report. I have used this feature quite a bit since its introduction, and I love the flexibility it provides! I hope you had a chance to see developer Dan Schikore's post

Creating a custom map for my workout data in JMP 12

In the previous post in this fitness and food series, I showed some examples of how I have been using local data filter to customize graphs of my workout data. JMP 12 offers a new alternative to list-based data filters in the form of selection filters, or graphs that can act
