What is Time-series Filter in vMAP?

Time-series is one of vMAP's dynamic filtering features. It is similar to the Histogram Filter feature, but Time-series uses temporal values as the interval value. With the Time-series Filter, you can filter any field value by a temporal value (minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, quarterly, years).  Click and drag the bars on the Time-series panel using a brush (sliding window) to filter the data by a custom interval. The corresponding polygons and points will be displayed on the mapview in real-time.

For example, you can filter by the monthly sales volume of a store. Select the sale volume as the filtered Field, and select Month as the Date interval, then the sales volume of each month will be listed as bar in the corresponding interval. Click and drag the bars on the Time-series panel to display to filtered data on the mapview..
