There are two ways how to control and inspect the time dimension of your data.

Global date

This is the core control of the application. Global date allows you to specify the master time range for which your data is displayed in the map. Any data with timestamp falling behind or ahead the selected range will be ignored in the entire view.

Setting up the range

  1. open Global date menu in the upper left corner of your view

  2. select the Start date

  3. select the End date

For better control, you can specify the range using time periods grouped by days, weeks, months, quarters or years. Pick whatever describes the desired range best.

Note that greyed out numbers in the calendar indicate that there are no data available for that particular dates or periods.

Time series

Time series is a special type of block that gives you an overview of the progress of values for selected indicator. Its range is always identical to the one selected in Global date and cannot be changed individually.

You can divide the range by different time periods (days, weeks, months, quarters and years) and explore the trend in various detail.
