Monument ( enables you to quickly apply algorithms to data in a no-code interface. But, after you drag the algorithms onto data to generate predictions, you need to decide which algorithm or combination of algorithms is most reliable for your task.

In the ocean temperature tutorial, we cleaned open remote sensing data and fed the data into Monument in order to forecast future ocean temperatures. In that case, we used visual inspection to evaluate the accuracy of different algorithms, which was…
