SeeDB: Visualizing Database Queries Efficiently

Parameswaran, Aditya and Polyzotis, Neoklis and Garcia-Molina, Hector SeeDB: Visualizing Database Queries Efficiently. Technical Report. Stanford InfoLab.




Data scientists rely on visualizations to interpret the data returned by queries, but finding the right visualization remains a manual task that is often laborious. We propose a DBMS that partially automates the task of finding the right visualizations for a query. In a nutshell, given an input query Q, the new DBMS optimizer will explore not only the space of physical plans for Q, but also the space of possible visualizations for the results of Q. The output will comprise a recommendation of potentially "interesting" or "useful" visualizations, where each visualization is coupled with a suitable query execution plan. We discuss the technical challenges in building this system and outline an agenda for future research.
