Introduction

Numeric data can be categorised as

  • Numerical: values describing quantaties/measurements
  • Categorical: values describing characteristics or groups

This distinction is important in interpreting your values. It effects:

  • which operators/functions can be applied logically on your data items.
  • the values units to be configured
  • the way data is classified (mainly for the map view).
