Time series feature design: User interface

We need one.  But that is pretty much all I have to say about it. Most of the ways you’ve to look at time series data end up something like this:

But before you can get here, you need to handle:

  • Looking at series
  • Inspecting raw series data
  • Tagging / searching series
  • Looking at the roll up values across different dates for different series
  • Delete data (full series or range of data)

Probably other stuff, but those are the things that I can think of.

Probably a good place to do a lot of graphs, too, just to let the users play with the data. But that is what I have in mind here so far.

Oh, and quite obviously, we want to be able to output everything to CSV so users can look at that in Excel, of course.

Nothing beats the Google Charts API Annotated Time Line.

@Andy - Thanks for the link. Didn't know about that.

Looks like Annotated Timeline (Flash) has been replaced by [Annotation Charts][https://developers.google.com/chart/interactive/docs/gallery/annotationchart].

We use graphite for our time series display requirements.
