Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Spotfire

TIBCO Spotfire was being used to compare geological data from subsurface core datasets. I am currently the only grad student using it within my lab. But I have shown many other grad students the program and the possibilities it has for addressing large datasets.
  • Spotfire is very visually appealing.
  • There are a lot of different ways to visualize datasets and compare the data.
  • It is easy to upload and update/refresh the spreadsheets when your data changes.
  • It is not easy to drop a datapoint. Sometime there are outliers to the dataset and being able to easily drop one or a couple data points and see how trends change would be very useful.
  • I was using a Mac and in the online version, you cannot do as many things as you can if you are using the program through a PC. For example, on the online version, you cannot add a trend line to a graph. This is a pretty basic procedure that should be available.
Both are very comparable and make analyzing large datasets easy. I used Spotfire in an internship so I was familiar with the layout and decided to keep using it at the university.
  • It has helped me visualize large datasets for my thesis
It is very well suited for a large dataset. In a few clicks, you can compare many different variables from different spreadsheets (when linked together).
