How do I visualize data in Snowsight?

Daniel Steinhold Asked question October 27, 2023

Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Query Your Data: First, you’ll need to run SQL queries in Snowsight to retrieve the data you want to visualize. Use the SQL editor in Snowsight to create and execute your queries.
  2. Export Data: After you’ve obtained the data you need, you can export the results as a CSV, Excel, or other compatible formats. Snowsight should offer export options within the results interface.
  3. Use Data Visualization Tools: To create visualizations, you can import the exported data into dedicated data visualization tools like Tableau, Power BI, or even open-source tools like Python with libraries like Matplotlib, Seaborn, or Plotly. Here’s a general process for this:
    • Open your data visualization tool.
    • Import the data file (CSV, Excel, etc.) that you exported from Snowsight.
    • Create the visualizations you need, such as charts, graphs, and dashboards, based on the data.
  4. Interactive Dashboards: Depending on your chosen data visualization tool, you can often create interactive dashboards that allow you to explore and interact with the data visually. This is particularly useful for gaining insights and presenting data to others.
  5. Publish or Share: Once you have created the visualizations, you can publish or share them within your organization. Many data visualization tools allow you to publish dashboards or reports to a web-based platform, and you can share the links with colleagues or stakeholders.
  6. Automate: If you need to keep your visualizations up to date with the latest data from Snowflake, you can set up automation or scheduled data refreshes in your data visualization tool. This ensures that your visualizations are always current.

Please note that the specific steps may vary based on the data visualization tool you choose. Snowsight itself is not primarily a data visualization tool, so you’ll need to use a dedicated tool for creating visualizations based on the data you query in Snowsight.

For the most up-to-date guidance on integrating Snowsight with data visualization tools or any additional features that may have been introduced since my last knowledge update, I recommend referring to the official Snowflake documentation or contacting your organization’s IT or data team for specific instructions.
