  • Publication number: 20180011626
    Abstract: Systems and methods for aggregating and storing different types of data, and generating interactive user interfaces for analyzing the stored data. In some embodiments, entity data is received for a plurality of entities from one or more data sources, and used to determine attribute values for the entities for one or more given time periods. The plurality of entities may be categorized into one or more entity groups, and aggregate attribute values may be generated based upon the entity groups. A first interactive user interface is generated displaying the one or more entity groups in association with the aggregated attribute values associated with the entity group. In response to a received indication of a user selection of an entity group, a second interactive user interface is generated displaying the one or more entities associated with the selected entity group, each entity displayed in association with the attribute values associated with the entity.

  • Publication number: 20170139558
    Abstract: Various systems and methods are provided that display various graphs in an interactive user interface in substantially real-time in response to input from a user in order to determine information related to measured data points and provide the determined information to the user in the interactive user interface. For example, a computing device may be configured to retrieve data from one or more databases and generate one or more interactive user interfaces. The one or more interactive user interfaces may display the retrieved data in one or more graphs, such as time-series or scatterplots. The user interface may be interactive in that a user may manipulate one graph, which causes an identical or nearly identical manipulation of another displayed graph in real-time. The manipulations may occur even if the displayed graphs include data across different time ranges.
