RT-View Y-axis configuration
09 December 2010
The next phase of continuous improvement to RT-View concentrated on the Y-axis configuration. Whereas previous versions used one axis for each measurement on the graph, the new version of RT-View supports up to 8 axes. Each measurement can appear on any of the axes.
The screenshot above shows 5 measurements arranged on 3 graphs. Two NCOM files are loaded to compare the outputs of the flagship RT3003 to the cost-effective RT2502. The axis on the left is configured in the range 0 to 80 and has a title of Speed (km/h). The speed measurements (green and dotted red) from the RT2502 and the RT3003 are plotted against this axis. The roll angle of the two products is plotted on an axis on the right, titled Roll (degrees). A third axis (GPS satellites) is used to plot the number of GPS satellites during the test.
The title of the graph can also be set by the user and appears at the top of the graph.
The measurements window used to configure the graph is clearly laid out, making it simple and intuitive to change the graph’s configuration. The Y-axis configuration is also intuitive, giving the user control over how the axes appear on the graph.
This change to RT-View helps make the templates more powerful. We will be creating and updating the templates in the next version. It also makes the graphs powerful enough for including in presentations and reports. The prepared graph can be exported from RT-View and easily imported into Word and other packages.
OxTS is continually improving RT-View. The next version of RT-View will have a more powerful data storage engine, which will allow us to plot all of the RT’s measurements in RT-View, including accuracies and debug information.
