Timeseries Surface Plot Settings

Time Series Surface Plots are used to identify trends and outliers within Time Series surfaces, typically forward curves across time.

The Surface is made up of a series of points where each point has:

q  Time Position

q  Y Position

q  Color (which represents the Z axis).

The color scale can be continuous or stepped to show a surface gradient.

The timeseries surface plot settings pane is displayed after clicking the Options  button.




Show Points

Determines whether surface data points are shown.

Rectilinear Grid

Determines whether distinct y values and time slices are changed into a rectilinear grid where missing values are filled in with a default of zero (or the ground level).

Show Coordinates

Determines whether the graph coordinates (i.e., X-Y plots, or Date/Time-Y plots) on mouse over are displayed in the visualization.


Other visualization-specific properties can be set by clicking on the Y-Axis variable drop area and then selecting the Y-Axis tab:
