Tabular data

← Return to Glossary

Tabular data contains data points that can be represented using rows and columns. This data is often represented in charts such as bar charts, or as a pivot table on a page.

Here is an example of some data that could be returned in tabular form:

Name Age Height Weight Colour
Jerry 23 165 61 Green
Alex 36 172 69 Blue
Sam 42 184 75 Grey

Tabular data is obtained from Oracle or SQL Server, and requires a dataset datasource.

Important Note: If your tabular data has timestamp information, you have another option. We can convert it into time series data by using the Relational Adaptor. This allows you to convert the data that you have in an Oracle or SQL Server database into a time series data stream, as you would get if you were connected to a PI or PHD historian.
