Adjusting interval chart visualizations

Interval visualizations bin (aggregate) records in intervals and visualize the data in each bin using the bar height, or line position. You can adjust bin heights, ranges, zoom and measurement scales of interval charts.

Chart size



Keshif automatically creates appropriate bins (ranges) for histograms and line-charts, based on (i) chart width, (ii) data distribution, (iii) data extend (zooming), and (iv) binning configurations. For numeric data, Keshif auto-selects log-scale for skewed data, and optimizes to unit-scales as well. For timestamp data, Keshif uses common time ranges such as years, months, weeks, days and so on automatically.


Zooming in / out of interval charts

  • After filtering the data, zooming-in allows you to get a closer look into the numeric or timestamp data.
