Client-side Timeseries Sliders

  • Describe Feature

To enable easier visual EDA of high frequency timeseries data, we would like to implement some kind of interface to filter a timeseries chart and quickly scroll through a timeseries similar to the timeseries slider available in Plotly.

  • What is the use case?

When exploring timeseries data, we are often interested in understanding a general shape of a series and groups within that series. These data might represent operational characteristics where aggregation is not very useful. One specific example might be to get a sense of the time between peaks and troughs in a timeseries plot.

Ideally there is some kind of client side filter that doesn’t re-trigger a query because exploration typically involves looking at a shape and filtering down and “scrolling” through the timeseries.

  • How often would this feature be used?

Very frequently because high frequency timeseries is a common reporting entity.

  • What is the impact of this feature on your organization?

It would enable much wider adoption for internal Sigma dashboards because it is considered a core capability of our current adhoc reporting tools.

An interesting use case from an energy storage company, @ttu! Sharing with our fabulous @katherine , Visualization PM. Welcome other users who are also interested in a time-series slider function to post their use cases.
