A time-series plot is a univariate plot in which the variation of a measure across time is presented. Every potential instance of that time dimension (between the minimum and maximum) is included. If a time instance has no measurement, the line is broken at this point and flagged with a red marker.
The following is an array of such plots. In a VisiCube array, you are presented individual plots for a single measure...each for a different set of records. An array gives you the ability to quickly compare the sets of records.
In this array, you can see that the visibility in Helops is both lower and less variable than it is in Schizillus. The plot also calls into question the measurements for Gonasida and Asidina...but in different ways. Because it is very unlikely that the true maximum visibility would be reached more than once, let alone very frequently and consistently, it seems likely that the maximum reading of 50 miles for Gonasida is probably not an accurate measurement but rather the maximum value that can be recorded. And it seems very unlikely that the visibility in Asidina is 20 miles, neither more nor less, nearly every day. Some consideration should probably be given to the accuracy of this data and the method used to record these measurements. Finally, it can also be seen that measurements were not recorded on weekends in Gonasida.
The data presented here is fictitious weather data for the equally fictitious land of InsectusMaximus. It was generated, in 2003, by The Datamology Company for demonstration purposes.
This data (and visual) is supplied with VisiCube as a sample project.
