The distribution analytics page displays statistics on how the values of the properties in your data are distributed over a certain time period and area. This is the same information as what is shown on the distribution panel on the visual analytics page.
Distribution analytics = segmentation analytics
Distribution analysis is also called segmentation or segment analytics.
However, compared to the visual analytics distribution panel, the distribution analytics page:
Makes it easy to compare the distribution of a property in different regions against each other
Makes it easy to compare two time periods against each other, and spotting the difference
Example use-cases for the distribution analytics page include
Looking at the speed profile on different sections of the highway.
Analyzing the different age groups that visit a store versus a store of the competition.
