View larger This is by no means a complete list. Even though it may not always be obvious, a large percentage of data sets can be transformed into a structured form that is more suitable for analysis and modeling. If not, it may be possible to extract features from a data set into a structured form. As an example, a collection of news articles could be processed into a word frequency table which could then be used to perform sentiment analysis. Most users of spreadsheet programs like Microsoft Excel, perhaps the most widely used data analysis tool in the world, will not be strangers to these kinds of data. What Is This Book About? This book is concerned with the nuts and bolts of manipulating, processing, cleaning, and crunching data in Python. It is also a practical, modern introduction to scientific computing in Python, tailored for data-intensive applications. This is a book about the parts of the Python language and libraries youâll need to effectively solve a broad set of data analysis problems. This book is not an exposition on analytical methods using Python as the implementation language. When I say 'data', what am I referring to exactly? The primary focus is on structured data, a deliberately vague term that encompasses many different common forms of data, such as: Multidimensional arrays (matrices). Tabular or spreadsheet-like data in which each column may be a different type (string, numeric, date, or otherwise). This includes most kinds of data commonly stored in relational databases or tab- or comma-delimited text files. Multiple tables of data interrelated by key columns (what would be primary or foreign keys for a SQL user). Evenly or unevenly spaced time series.
