Raw Data Visualization

Generating a Raw Data Visualization

You can generate time series and distribution charts for your raw data.

To generate a Raw Data Visualization:

  1. On the Analysis tab, under Data Exploration, click Raw Data Visualization.
  2. On the main Raw Data Visualization screen, select your options on the left. For more details about each option, see Raw Data Visualization Options.
  3. Click Update.
  4. View the results. This example shows a scatterplot of alarms by time.

Raw Data Visualization Options

The Raw Data Visualization options include:

  1. Asset: You can select an asset from your raw data.
  2. Stream Types: You can select one or more stream types. All are selected by default, and you can remove stream types to apply a filter.
  3. Raw Field: You can select one raw field to visualize over time.
    NOTE: You can later select a second field, but are limited to one in this window.
  4. Date Range: You can click the date range selector, and then select the range that you want to display.
  5. Show by: You can change the chart from time series to distribution (that is, how often the variable you selected occurs at certain values).
  6. Update: Click this button to generate the chart.
    NOTE: If the results contain more than 10,000 records, the interface only displays the first 10,000.

Customizing the Raw Data Visualization
