Highly Scalable Tile-Based Visualization for Exploratory Data Analysis

The open source Aperture Tiles provides interactive data exploration with continuous zooming on large scale datasets. By leveraging big data software stacks Hadoop, Apache Spark and HBase for distributed computation and storage, the technique can scale to data sets with billions of data points or more. In this talk we review the Tile-based visual analytic methodology, challenges and highlight some example applications.
