The majority of this notebook has been dedicated to processing large datasets and plotting histograms.

In this section, we will address the problem of displaying the actual elements of large datasets. We will then return to the last HDF5 table in the remainder of the chapter.
As a refresher on the volume that we're looking at, the number of data points in our dataset can be calculated in the following way:
In : data_len = len(tab) data_len Out: 288000000
Again, our dataset has nearly one third of ...
