Few tools exist for data exploration and pattern iden-tification in time series data sets. Timeboxes are rectan-
gular, direct-manipulation queries for studying time-series
datasets. Timeboxes are the primary query tool in our Time-
Searcher application, which supports interactive explo-
ration via dynamic queries, along with overviews of query
results and drag-and-drop support for query-by-example.
This paper describes the TimeSearcher application and pos-
sible extensions to the timebox query model, along with a
discussion of the use of TimeSearcher for exploring a time
series data set involving gene expression profiles.
