Deconstructing a time index into time granularities can assist in exploration and automated analysis of large temporal data sets. This paper describes classes of time deconstructions using linear and cyclic time granularities. Linear granularities respect the linear progression of time such as hours, days, weeks and months. Cyclic granularities can be circular such as hour-of-the-day, quasi-circular such as day-of-the-month, and aperiodic such as public holidays. The hierarchical structure of… Expand


Efficiently Supported Temporal Granularities
This work presents a formal model for granularity in temporal operations that is integrated with temporal indeterminacy, or "don't know when" information, and minimally extend the syntax and semantics of SQL-92 to support mixed granularities. Expand
Efficiently Supporting Temporal Granularities
Granularity is an integral feature of temporal data. For instance, a person’s age is commo nly given to the granularity ofyearsand the time of their next airline flight to the granularity of minutes.Expand
A New Tidy Data Structure to Support Exploration and Modeling of Temporal Data
This work presents a cohesive and conceptual framework for organizing and manipulating temporal data, which in turn flows into visualization, modeling, and forecasting routines. Expand
Time Granularities in Databases, Data Mining, and Temporal Reasoning

The paper analyzes the expressiveness of known symbolic formalisms for the representation of granularities, using the mathematical characterization as a reference model, and proposes a significant extension to the collection formalism defined in [15] in order to capture a practically interesting class of periodic Granularities.
