Parallel Coordinates to select Time-Series

Parallel coordinates as a way to select a subset and explore time-series.


“Parallel coordinates are a common way of visualizing high-dimensional geometry and analyzing multivariate data.” Wikipedia

On this template you can brush any axis and narrow down a few lines, click on a line to display its corresponding time-serie on the graph below. Compare multiple time-series together, you can also zoom in and out by brushing the graph. Reset the zoom by clicking on “clear” in the lower right corner.


Note: This dataset was put together to look at Californian net loads, this is an early version (dimensions are processed to get monthly values).

The data was collected through the Pyiso API, the data can also be directly fetched on the CAISO website.
