My current plan is to use the line chart form in the label chart.But there is a problem that the data in the chart accumulates more and more, and it is impossible to observe normally. I want to know if there is a good solution.
As shown in the figure, all the data points are densely packed together.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If I understand the question correctly, you have lots of data and looking for a way to output it in a meaningful / comprehensible way to a chart?
This more an analytical / business-oriented problem, than a technical. Even if you could output the data on a big screen with infinite resolution so the points were not packed densely and humans could see all the points, one wouldn't be able to comprehend the data and make conclusions / decisions from it.
There are several approaches to this, as I see it...
1) Just output data for a smaller timeframe, so there are not so many points. Meh... Not a solution actually, but still makes sense in some cases.
2) Aggregate data in a some way
- output avg of some group number of points, e.g. avg of hourly / daily / weekly etc, so there will be 1 point on the graph for each N in the data
- kind of same, but output 3 graphs - avg / max / min of hourly / daily / weekly
3) Use boxplot with whiskers for hourly / daily / weekly data
On the graph below instead of outputting N points for every given day, a boxplot is used and shows one aggregated bix with min/max/median/0.25/0.75 percentiles
