If you want to forecast, you have to be able to analyze past and future data. The time axis can be combined with scatter plots, histograms, and many other types of graphical representation.
It is also possible to position a time series directly inside the graph. Instead of being an axis, time becomes the subject of representation. This makes it possible to visually understand what is going on when a piece of data evolves in its time window.
The functionalities of data visualization solutions like TIBCO Spotfire allow to "play" a scenario and transform a flat representation into an animated representation, whose third dimension is time.
In the demo part our TIBCO Spotfire expert will show how to use the time axis in Spotfire, Gantt charts, pie charts or scatter plots over several months, graphical tables or trend charts.
