SciQLOP (SCIentific Qt application for Learning from Observations of Plasmas) aims to be an ergonomic and powerful tool enabling visualization and analysis of in-situ space plasma data. This goal rises some challenges either technical and in the conception and the design. The time resolution allowed by nowadays measurements imply the ability to plot millions of points just for one sensor with no compromise on interactivity. Plots may stay responsive even with millions of points. Being able to scroll, zoom, move and export the plots with the mouse are the minimal interactions expected by the user. SciQLOP may also abstract the manipulation of physic data while providing contextual features such as coordinate transform, physical quantity extraction from data. That said increasing graphical features usually lead to slower software and more complex GUI. Keeping SciQLOP lightweight and intuitive is one of the priorities to make it usable and competitive.
