Visualizations trellised by data columns

Trellised visualizations are split into panels, where the panels display various subsets of the data table. For example, what is shown in a panel can be based on values from a specific numerical column only.

Subsets of data can be defined by splitting the data into categories that are available in a data column. Creating trellised visualizations with panels that compare categories is described in Creating a trellised visualization.
