We’re pleased to post about another related project: Timeplot, which is
a canvas-based ajaxy plotting companion to
our Timeline widget (that also supports the same timeline data formats).
Follow the link; the screen shot doesn’t do it justice. While you’re there, don’t miss the comprehensive tutorial, which shows how easy it is to create these charts.
In a nutshell, you do this:
- <script src="http://static.simile.mit.edu/timeplot/api/1.0/timeplot-api.js"
- var timeplot = Timeplot.create(document.getElementById("my-timeplot"), plotInfo);
- timeplot.loadText("data.txt", ",", eventSource);
and the “data.txt” file is just a CSV file. And the tutorial even shows you how to make it look purty.
