This work proposes a visual analytic solution which is well-designed to provide investigative functions with fluent interactions to analyze multi-dimensional temporal data. The solution allows users to view different dimensions of the data at different levels of details with a well-designed mixture of different visualizations and smooth interactions. At the general/overview level, various aggregation strategies are used to reduce data to be visualized, and different sorting procedures are used to cluster correlated data together to help discover patterns. Detail views are provided to explore and confirm/reject the identified patterns. Interaction and smooth transition between views are implemented to enable natural actions while performing analysis tasks. This work also presents the result of applying the solution to the VAST 2018 - Mini-Challenge 2 dataset, which led to the Strong Support for Exploratory Analysis award for the challenge.
