Widespread interest in discovering features and trends in time- series has generated a need for tools that support interactive exploration.This paper introduces timeboxes: a powerful direct-manipulation metaphor for the specification of queries over time series datasets. Our TimeSearcher implementation of timeboxes supports interactive formulation and modification of queries, thus speeding the process of exploring time series data sets and guiding data mining.
