I would like to make a waterfall graph on my maps if possible (not sure if that's the best name... it's what we called them in the Navy). Basically, I figured I would have to stack a couple of graphs together to get this to work, but the general idea would look like this....
The total graph would be cut up into segments. Each segment would contain a more lengthy but compressed version of the first segment... minus the previous segment's contents.
For example... The total graph is 12 inches long. We break it into 3 equal segments of 4 inches. The first segment has data from "Now" to 30 minute. The second segment has data from 30 minutes to 4 hours. The 3rd segment has data from 4 hours to 24 hours.
The idea is that data is essentially compressed as it stacks up further down the graph. But, making such a graph is proving to be difficult. First off... I don't see anywhere to be able to specify a custom start/stop time range on a graph. Second, while I know I've seen that the graphs are held in memory with specific settings for time slices... I would assume that one would have to specify which graph it was pulling data from to get the desired resolution... unless it would just grab the appropriate data set that meets the specified time window (which would be incredibly convenient and therefore not really a problem).
There are a few other things I would love to tweak like being able to show the x-axis but not the legend and things like that... but I think I can get around that with some creative extra map features. If anyone can help me with the custom time range though... that would be FANTASTIC! And, thank you very much in advance for any help.
