The timeseries Chart window offers a dynamic environment for customized visualization of data. Every Chart window has a main panel plot area where the primary sensor data is plotted, a time window series selector at the bottom, and a toolbar at the top with controls for visualization and customization. 

Access

Charts can be accessed and created by either selecting a sensor on the Map, or by going to the Chart tab of the Command Center.

Unlike other features in Info360, Charts are not saved and stored within the Command Center.
