Querying data in Timescale works just like querying data in PostgreSQL. You can reuse your existing queries if you're moving from another PostgreSQL database.

Timescale also provides some additional features to help with data analysis:

  • Use PopSQL to work on data with centralized SQL queries, interactive visuals and real-time collaboration
  • The SkipScan feature speeds up DISTINCT queries
  • Hyperfunctions improve the experience of writing many data analysis queries
  • Function pipelines bring functional programming to SQL queries, making it easier to perform consecutive transformations of data
