Welcome to Hilltop

Hilltop Analytics is the home for Neil Charles’s data visualisations, analysis and any other projects that felt worthy of a permanent home.

Why Hilltop Analytics?

When you can’t see the wood for the trees…

Don’t plant more trees.

Climb a hill.

We’re swamped by data. It’s everywhere and it’s often easier to capture more, than it is to make the data that you already have, do something useful.

Hilltop Analytics is a philosophy. Before you attack a problem in detail, it helps to take a look from a wider perspective, to really understand the question, to re-frame it and to let that work guide your analysis. A short, sharp climb up a hill is a worthwhile, concentrated effort, to gain a real understanding of the landscape in which you’re working.
