Thanksgiving and Big Data Visualization

Big Data can slice and dice just about anything.   Big data analytics company, Datawatch, has created two fun demos using turkey and Thanksgiving dinner data.    Although the page is promoting a download a 14-day free trial of the company's software, no download (or registration) is required to see and manipulate the workbooks.

First tab gives you all the data you would ever want about turkey production and turkey consumption in the U.S. and the second tab .. well, let's just say that manipulating the data in the second tab will drive one to exercise on Friday.  Note for you lovers of turkey legs, no caloric data is included.

Happy Thanksgiving!
