Use a modifier to make axis values easier to read by reducing the size of very large numbers. Many EnergyPlus results are given in straight Joules or Watts, so some scale ranges can be more than 20 digits long. Applying a modifier does not change the resolution or raw data in any way, it simply applies additional numeric scaling factor.
This application allows you to display analysis or weather data across the year grouped by day, week and month. The aim is to facilitate the visual identification of trends based on where they fit within the standard working week and seasonally across the year, which may not be as immediately obvious using other chart types. This format is also particularly well suited to the represention of annual scheduling information.
According to ISO 8601, the international standard week starts on a Monday and finishes on a Sunday. Whilst there are cultural variations, ISO 8601 is an agreed standard that provides an unambiguous and well-defined method of representing dates and times across all countries, even those with completely different representational conventions.
In relation to building performance analysis, using this standard corresponds well with the typical international working week, in which there are likely to be differences in activity levels on weekdays (Mon to Fri) and weekends (Sat, Sun). In terms of the chart itself, it means that weekdays and weekends are naturally grouped together for purposes of both interactive selection and direct visual comparison, instead of weekends being split apart at either end of the chart.
I needed to develop this type of chart as part of my annual hourly schedule editor. This app is a by-product that lets me stress test its different parameters and make sure it is flexible and robust enough to handle different types of daily data.
The following are some of this app's more interesting features:
The Shift and Ctrl/Meta keys are used pretty extensively to modify interactive data entry. This applies to all increment buttons, scroll wheel motion, slider controls and input elements.
NOTE: You can use the scroll wheel to edit a data value when hovering over any slider, numeric input or even table rows that indicate their editibility.
