Visualisations are based on the entered Objects, Sub-Objects and relationships between Objects. You can use the Conditions and various kinds of Visualisation Settings to customise the behaviour and the design of the visualisations. Any visualisation starts from an Object Type or Classificaion and visualises the currently active Objects or Categories or an opened Object or Category. The checkboxes shown next to Objects and Categories are used for Multi Objects Operations and have no effect on visualisations.
By default, the Date Slider will display a period and selection based on the visualised data. This behaviour can be changed by means of the Frame settings. Use the left and right handlers to expand or shrink the selection. Use the left and right buttons to move the selection backward or forward in time or drag the selection backward and forward in time. Use the date input fields to enter a start and/or end date for the selection.
Use the input fields below the date slider to animate the selection with a specified amount of time. Specify an amount and select a unit ('day'/'week'/'month'/'year') to be played per second. Click the play, pause, or stop buttons to control the playback of the animation. Check the checkbox 'Play selection backwards in time.' to play the selection backwards in time.
Click the 'View Selection' button to view the selection of Objects currently active in the visualisation.
By default, the zoom level will display all the visualised data. This behaviour can be changed by means of the Frame settings. Click the '+' button to zoom in. Click the '-' button to zoom out.
In the Geographical Visualisation, the legend displays the autogenerated colours per kind of Sub-Object. In the Social Visualisation, the legend displays the specified colours per Type. Sub-Objects and Objects can be highlighted and included in the legend by means of the Conditions.
