a visually scalable line graph management system that provides a compact overview of an entire time-varying data collection by encoding the y-dimension of individual line graphs with color instead of space, to enable the user to see major common features & alignments of the data. the technique is illustrated with examples from meteorology (i.e. the daily mean temperature from 1995-2005 for 324 international cities) & biology (DNA gene expression data).
