visualization of complex time-oriented data


DataMontage™ is a Java software library and collection of interactive software applications that enable you to create and display information-dense, interactive graphical displays comprised of coordinated timelines and time-series graphs. You can stack graphs and timelines vertically or arrange them in rows and columns to see patterns spanning many variables, individuals, or subsets. Flexible control over the color, shape, and size of graph and timeline symbols lets you encode multiple attributes and highlight significant data points. Colored lines and background regions help you compare data points to reference values, ranges, and time intervals.

The DataMontage Editor enables you to create graphical displays or display templates interactively. Your Java applet, desktop application, or web server application can embed the DataMontage run-time library to configure the content and format of DataMontage display objects via Java application programming interface (API). In addition, programs written in any language can configure DataMontage displays by creating Extensible Markup Language (XML) files. The extensive DataMontage API and JavaScript support enable you to create custom user interactions.
