The TimeSlider extension has been used to manage time-varying data such as:

  • Time series observation data from multiple points (e.g. current meters, wind stations, water quality sensors)
  • Satellite derived observation data (e.g. sea surface temperature)
  • Moving objects (e.g. drifting buoys, vehicles, vessels)
  • Numerical model Results (e.g. oil spills, flood inundation predictions, hydrodynamic simulations, sediment transport)
  • Intelligent agent models (e.g. bird movement, pandemic outbreak, fish schooling, crowd simulation)
  • Emergency personnel and resource deployments
