New to Spotfire...wonder if there is a way to take a time series, create heat/contour maps and make an animation of time series of a data set that changes ( recontours) ?

Hello,

I don't have a good answer for what I believe you are looking for, so I have been holding off from answering, waiting for a good answer, but as this is a few days old now, maybe a bad answer is better than nothing at all.

Depending on your use case, maybe something like the Animated Bubble Chart Mod for TIBCO Spotfire (https://community.tibco.com/s/exchange/aCv4z0000008Od4CAE/animated-bubble-chart-mod-for-tibco-spotfire?_ga=2.17085753.169652408.1679569284-776196050.1636355826) could be used. It's not a heat/contour map, but may be worth exploring as an alternative.

For another option that would require more work, you might be able to base something on the Spatial Density Map Data Function for TIBCO Spotfire (https://community.tibco.com/s/exchange/aCv4z0000008OZcCAM/spatial-density-map-data-function-for-tibco-spotfire)

Hello John

Can you provide an example of what you are envisioning? Are you already using a data function that is creating a contour? If so, how long is taking the contour / heatmap to render? There are different techniques to achieve something similar. For example, if the contour /heat map does not take too long to generate, you can add a control to pass parameter to the data function that generates the contour and update the contour to see how it changes. You could also automate this manual update with IronPython. If the image takes a while to render, are you planning on making an animation out of the many image outputs? This could also be done, but then you have to wait for each image to render in order to put together an animation. Another potential solution is to create a Spotfire Mod, which is a custom visualization. Is there a specific software you can refer to that does what you are looking to do in Spotfire? What is the use case?exploration.animation.thumb.gif.049d3519d0ad1e1a845881f0f1c1ba44.gif 

Was this what you were looking for?
