Categorical time series data can not be effectively visualized and modeled using methods developed for ordinary data. The arbitrary mapping of categorical data to ordinal values can have a number of undesirable consequences. New techniques for visualizing and modeling categorical time series data are described, and examples are presented using computer and communications network traces.
