Line graph explorer: scalable display of line graphs using Focus+Context
Scientific measurements are often depicted as line graphs. Stateof-the-art high throughput systems in life sciences, telemetry and electronics measurement rapidly generate hundreds to thousands of such graphs. Despite the increasing volume and ubiquity of such data, few software systems provide efficient interactive management, navigation and exploratory analysis of large line graph collections. To address these issues, we have developed Line Graph Explorer (LGE). LGE is a novel and visually scalable line graph management system that supports facile navigation and interactive visual analysis. LGE provides a compact overview of the entire collection by encoding the y-dimension of individual line graphs with color instead of space, thus enabling the analyst to see major common features and alignments of the data. Using Focus+Context techniques, LGE provides interactions for viewing selected compressed graphs in detail as standard line graphs without losing a sense of the general pattern...
