Data Desk for Academics

Instructors

Data Desk was developed over 30 years ago by a Cornell University Statistics Professor, and we’ve never forgotten our roots. Our graphical interface is easy to learn and easy to use. Students point to what they want to do and drag variables onto plots and tables to specify what to do it with, so you don’t need to spend class time teaching coding.

Students

Looking for help with your statistics class? You’ve come to the right place. Data desk is entirely point-and-click graphical. You won’t need to learn a new language or worry about punctuation and syntax.

Our Mission

“Data Desk was designed as a data analysis companion that encourages exploration to help you discover both patterns and the points that don’t fit. The idea driving this, and what distinguishes Data Desk, is that seeing is understanding.”

Compatible with small RAM, Data Desk works efficiently with vast data sets on any computer to generate representations in under a second. Representations can then be exported into R or Python files, giving infinite code examples for students, statisticians and analysts to interact with.

DDRP

Data Desk’s R and Python export functions can help you learn R and Python, giving you samples of code to study and modify, empowering you with the languages’ wide hosts of data structures to compose statistical and graphical models showing linear and non-linear representations, time series analyses, statistical tests, and much more. These user-bases are huge and growing, with a culture of sharing their findings and techniques with the community at large.

Data Desk is Faster Than Ever

A million cases in your data set? Two million? Data Desk doesn’t care. Plots and even complex analyses are instantaneous. Drag in a new variable and windows update instantly. Data Desk even starts up faster than any other comparable program.

 

All data analysis programs can summarize your data. But that’s not usually the whole story.

When you select an outlying or “suspicious” point of data, it will remain selected in every representation you open.

You’ll find it empowering to have an instant and easy way to see outliers in multiple views.

Gain More Perspective

Real world data analysis is hard. If you just apply formulas to data, you have a good chance of missing the true story. Data Desk lets you see your data in vivid and effective ways with multiple views that link together seamlessly.

DASL

DASL is The Data And Story Library

  • It contains archives real data from a wide variety of topics in a searchable format.
  • It’s the perfect teaching/learning aide for any level of statistics learning
  • Data Description is the proud sponsor of the evolving DASL archives!
As Data Exploration has become a central part of Data Science, we are proud to continue our leadership by providing DD users with convenient ways to cooperate with two widely used Data Science platforms; the R statistics language and the Python general-purpose language. With Data Desk’s new RP features you can use DD’s award-winning interface as a graphical interface to R. Or you can communicate your displays and analyses to someone who doesn’t (yet) have Data Desk. Students and teachers will find in this feature a gentle way to learn to write R or Python code.
