UI overview

Figure 1. Overview of the Origin-destination page UI

Going clockwise, the origin-destination page has the following UI elements

  • Select property: allows you to switch between showing the (relative) number of trips in the matrix, or the average travel time.

  • One/Two time periods toggle: toggle between analyzing a single time period, or doing side-by-side comparisons of 2 different periods

  • Time period selector: choose which time period to show on the matrices. You can select one of the predefined ones, or create a custom one.

  • Timezone selector: select in which timezone you want to see the results displayed. This is also the timezone in which the time filters you define are interpreted.

  • Areas of interest selector: choose the areas to include in the matrix. Each of the selected areas will be added as both an origin and destination area.

    The areas you can choose from are obtained from the areas of interest included in your project, as well as the areas you have drawn on the spatial map of the visual analytics page using the map controllers.

  • Attribute and time filters: you can filter the records that are used to calculate the matrices. For example, it allows to only include the "Cargo vessels" and "Fishing boats" instead of all vessels when calculating the matrix.

    You can filter on properties in your data, as well as some additional time filtering (days of week, hours of day, months of year).

    The UI to create these filters is the same as on the visual analytics page, explained here and here.

  • Matrix pop-up menu: shows a pop-up menu with additional options:

    • Export the data behind the matrix to a .csv file.

      The format of the exported csv data

      In case the matrix is showing average travel times, the data saved to the .csv file is in seconds where '-1' or NaN means there is no travel time computed because there was no data.

    • Add the matrix to the dashboard.

  • Matrix: the computed matrix
