Abstract:Spiral displays have been developed to visualize the cyclic character of a data set. They are particularly useful for spotting seasonal patterns in time series data. This, however, requires expressive visual encoding and efficient interaction.

In this paper, we improve existing spiral displays by applying the expressive two-tone pseudo coloring. This allows users to read off data values more precisely. More importantly, we enhance our twotone spiral display with efficient interaction facilities. These allow for easy exploration of the data space and easy adjustment of a variety of visualization parameters. Our tool is fully implemented and freely available for experimentation.
