Time series data is everywhere, from watching your stock portfolio to monitoring climate change, and even live-tracking as local cases of a virus become a global pandemic.
In this live code-along, you’ll work with a time series that tracks the tide levels of the Thames River. You’ll first inspect the data visually, and then perform calculations on the dataset to generate some summary statistics. Next, you’ll decompose the time series into its component attributes. You’ll end with a taster of time series forecasting.
