Tiles: Timeline Basics



The timeline is located at the top of the Tiles view. The bounds on either side are determined by the chronologically oldest and newest timestamps in the dataset.

You must select a timespan within the timeline for it to reflect in the Tiles display. Otherwise the entire dataset is shown. Selecting a timespan is done by clicking and dragging to the desired amount of time. This span of time can then be dragged to the desired date/time location on the timeline itself.  You can manually enter the timespan selection using the date/time edit fields in the top right corner.  

Minimum and maximum values reflect values within the selected time period. The value shown in "Last Value" tiles is the most recent value in the selected time span.

A selected time span will persist until you refresh the page.
