The Temporal Plot Tool is a wxGUI component that queries and plots the values of a point, defined by a coordinate pair, in one or more temporal datasets (strds, stvds, str3ds).

Supported features:

  • temporal datasets with interval/point and absolute/relative time,
  • pop-up annotations with values information,
  • query and plot multiple points via the command line,
  • zoom and pan,
  • change labels to x and y axes,
  • add title to the plot, and
  • export the time series values to a CSV file.

Figure: Temporal Plot Tool To optionally add a title to the temporal plot and/or change the x and y axes labels, first type the desired text and then click Draw as showed below.
Figure: Add title and labels to a time series plot To export the time series data to a text file (date and data values), type a name for the file and click Draw again. Optionally, set the check-box to print headers, as well.

g.gui.tplot requires the Python plotting library Matplotlib.
