Visual exploration of massive data sets arising from telecommunication networks and services is a challenge. This paper describes SWIFT-3D, an integrated data visualization and exploration system created at AT&T Labs for large scale network analysis. SWIFT-3D integrates a collection of interactive tools that includes pixel-oriented 2D maps, interactive 3D maps, statistical displays, network topology diagrams and an interactive drill-down query interface. Example applications are described, demonstrating a successful application to analyze unexpected network events (high volumes of unanswered calls), and comparison of usage of an Internet service with voice network traffic and local access coverage.
System and method for large-scale data visualization,
November 18, 2008
The present invention is directed to a new visualization platform for the interactive exploration of large datasets. The present invention integrates a collection of relevant visualization techniques to provide a new visual metaphor for viewing large datasets. It is capable of providing comprehensive support for data exploration, integrating large-scale data visualization with querying, browsing, and statistical evaluation. A variety of techniques are utilized to minimize processing delays and the use of system resources, including processing pipelines, direct IO, memory mapping, and dynamic linking of on-the-fly generated code.
