Time Serie - Vizualization


Most of the Time serie database have also a visualization tool.

75% of business graphs display time series data.

The visual representation of the full year with four seasons can be seen:

  • as a box,
  • as a straight line
  • or as a circle.

The visual mapping of time may be different across individuals.
