Data Limiting In Spotfire

  • Have you ever looked at a Spotfire project and been at a loss for how the data is being limited or filtered?
  • Would you like to know more about the Spotfire toolkit for limiting data?
  • Would you like to know when to use one method for data limiting over another?
  • Did you take a Spotfire basics course and need a refresher on how to limit data?

Every day, I see users relying entirely upon the Filter Panel to limit data. But, it isn’t always the best tool for the job. Thus, I decided to write a series about data limiting.

By the end, you will understand…

  • All of the different tools available to limit data in Spotfire.
  • Where to look for data limiting in projects you didn’t build.
  • What tool to use for any data limiting use case.

Here’s what to expect.
