Segmented Time-Series Plot: A New Design Technique for Visualization of Industrial Data

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10904)


Time-series plots have been widely used in the fields of data analysis and data mining because of its good visual characteristics. However, when researching and analyzing the massive data formed in industrial, some shortcomings of the traditional time-series plot make the visualization of big data ineffective, which is not conducive to data analysis and mining.

In this paper, the traditional time-series graph is improved and a segmented time-series plot that can be used for massive industrial data analysis is proposed. In addition, this paper describes in detail the steps of making the segmented time-series plot. The method can reduce the information overload and the interface issues by limiting the amount of information presented.
