Abstract: This paper addresses the problem of analyzing data collected by the dairy industry with the aim of optimizing the cattle-breeding management and maximizing profit in the production of milk. The amount of multivariate data from daily records constantly increases due to the employment of modern systems in farm management, requiring a method to show trends and insights in data for a rapid analysis. We have designed a visual analytics system to analyze time-varying data. Well-known visualization techniques for multivariate data are used next to novel methods that show the intrinsic multiple timeline nature of these data as well as the linear and cyclic time behavior. Seasonal and monthly effects on production of milk are displayed by aggregating data values on a cow-relative timeline. Basic statistics on data values are dynamically calculated and a density plot is used to quantify the reliability of a dataset. A qualitative expert user study conducted with animal researchers shows that th e system is an important means to identify anomalies in data collected and to understand dominant data patterns, such as clusters of samples and outliers. The evaluation is complemented by a case study with two datasets from the field of dairy science. (More)
