SMS:Time Series Plot
A Time Series plot is used to display the time variation of one or more scalar Data Sets associated with a mesh or grid at observation points in an Observation Coverage. In addition, if transient calibration data has been defined, a band can be shown which represents a time variant Calibration Target. Only transient data sets may be used in these plots. Time Series plots are created by using the Plot Wizard, found in the Display menu, and selecting Time Series from the plot type list in Step 1 of the Plot Wizard. A sample plot, with calibration target band, is shown in the figure.
Time Series Plot Options
After the plot type is set in Step 1 of the Plot Wizard, the user defines the time interval and the scalar data set desired for the plot in Step 2. When this is completed, click Finish and the plot will be generated.
Use active data set. This option causes the plot to display the values of the active data set for each observation point being plotted. When the active data set changes, the plot is recomputed and updated.
Use selected data set. This option causes the plot to display the values of one or more specified data sets for each point being plotted. Changing the active data set does not affect the plot. Select the data set from the list box by putting a check in the data set's check box.
Use calibration data. This allows the user to display the calibration curve defined for each point. If you do not have calibration data for the entity, leave the box unchecked and the calibration data will not be displayed.
