Using timelines

6.4 timeline.png
Learn how to visualize data with a timeline.

What timelines visualize

A timeline visualization shows activity time intervals and discrete events for a resource set. Activity for each resource appears in a separate timeline lane.

If an activity start time and duration are available for a particular resource, the timeline shows a duration interval as a horizontal bar in the lane. If only the start time is available, the timeline shows a circle at that time.

Use case examples

  • Network activity
  • Environmental activity, such as weather or earthquakes
  • Call center activity

Data for timelines

Use data that lets you infer activity start and end times or start times and durations.
