Adding an Exploration Panel¶
The exploration panel allows you to select a dataset to analyze. You can preview the data in the dataset, and view the schema. Once you know what your dataset contains, you can then define the transformations you want to apply to it. After performing your transformations, you can preview the new dataset, schema, and statistics, and save it as a new dataset.
