Where's the Squatch?
Bigfoot, also commonly referred to as Sasquatch, is a purported ape-like creature said to inhabit the forests of North America. Whether you are a firm believer in the existence of bigfoot, or this is your first time hearing about the fella, we have provided some extremely interesting data on the sightings of this mysterious creature. With this dataset, one would be capable of understanding exactly where the most sightings are coming from, what these sightings look like, and even the environment in which the sighting took place. Not only is this dataset informative, it is rich with information. With over five thousand sightings, there is plenty of information in this dataset to plan your next Bigfoot encounter.
The majority of bigfoot sightings occur during the summer in which approximately 34% of sightings take place. Fall is in second place with around 27% of sightings.
2012 was the year with the most recorded sightings with 191. Bigfoot sightings seem to be trending upwards, which might mean we are close to finding them (or maybe we are going crazy!).

Things to try in the data set:
Roll data up into groups of values within a column to look for trends. Place groups inside of groups to drill down another level, then group again!
Use the filters to narrow down the file to the values that interest you most. Only show values that include, exclude, contain, or are greater than a value (to name a few). Then add another level of filtering with AND / OR logic to dive deeper.
Not sure where to start? Use search to find values in the file and then go back and filter or group the entire data set down to just that value.
