Nanocubes: Fast Visualization of Large Spatiotemporal Datasets

Nanocubes are a fast datastructure for in-memory data cubes developed at the Information Visualization department at AT&T Labs Research. Nanocubes can be used to explore datasets with billions of elements at interactive rates in a web browser. In some cases, a nanocube uses sufficiently little memory that it can be run on a modern-day laptop.
