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.
