Temporal Symbology

Temporal, or time-based, symbology lets you alter the display of data based on age, showing time progression.

  • The time window sets the interval of data to be rendered.
  • Point symbols can be modified by color, symbol, and size, based on age of data and user preferences. Line and polygon symbols can be modified by color.
  • Track lines can be drawn to connect observations belonging to the same object.
  • Within a track, the current position of an object can be rendered using different symbology.
example of a time progression

Time progression, in this case showing paths of commercial aircraft, is rendered using color.
