Two years ago, I did the initial Alteryx workflow development that has now enabled me to continue investigating global climate change. That work represented a lot of development time and is now paying dividends as I continue my quest to quantify, visualize and understand global climate change.
The basis of this work was outlined in a five-part series that I affectionately refer to as my “Alteryx manifesto” and this series is accessible via these links:
If you are able to complete the work outlined in that series, you can say that you are able to work with a fairly high level of competence in modern-day, self-service data analytics.
Update in late 2016
Now I have decided to revisit and continue my work to do a more formal analysis of climate change across the globe. In this article, I provide a video that explains where the data comes from, how it is processed, and how I am going to use it. I also show a quick preview of maximum temperature data from one monitoring location in Algeria. I plan on doing a lot of work in 2017 on this topic.
In upcoming articles, additional data processing and analysis will be completed. I want to understand, for myself, what is happening over time to our global climate. Figure 1 is a preview of data from one randomly-selected monitoring station in Algeria.
If you are interested in the topic of global climate change, there are excellent blogs that you should know about. The first one is shown in Figure 2. You can click here to visit the site.

Since publishing this, I have written some additional articles. Here are the links.
