Time Series Plot

Time Series Plot

posted in: Hydro-FIT | 0

Hydro-FIT initially allows the user to view a time series of the data for any of the data site locations when the "Site Analysis" opens. If there is no index analysis component to the current analysis, then the plot will appear as a typical time series graph (not shown), where the sites that meet the initial data screening criteria are plotted as blue circles and connected by a line graph. Otherwise, the plot will look similar to the graph shown here, where the sites that meet the initial data screening criteria are plotted as blue and gray circles. The blue circles represent those stations that also meet the index limits that were set in the ‘Data Screening’ window, whereas the gray dots represent those sites that do meet the initial data screening criteria but do not meet the index limit criteria. Adjustments can be made to the limits of the x- and y-axes as well as to the font and size of the axis titles and labels.  Changes can also be made to the size, shape, and color of the markers, as well as to the line and background colors, until the plot has the overall desired look.  (The data used in the plot shown here represent PDI (Palmer Drought Index) data measured within a region in northern Argentina.)
