How to set a fixed scale X-Axis in the graphs

#1

Hello,

My question is how to have a fixed X-Axis scale in the output graphs so that you see the whole X-variable range from the beginning. For example, usually, in Epicenter the X-Axis (of course along with Y-Axis) will get updated after a new data point will be added to the graph.
In my example, I’m using a Vensim model and I have time (In years) as the X-axis. At the beginning, I see just the first year (Let’s say 2015). When end users push Advance button the new data point adds and X-axis gets updated and now they see 2015 and 2016.
My Questions is: can I set the time range at the beginning so that the end user sees the whole range/scale from the get go till the end of simulation for example from 2015 to 2030?

I’d appreciate your help,

Homa

Hi Homa Koohi,

Epicenter’s Interface Builder doesn’t support the fixed X-Axis and Y-Axis for the graphs/charts, but it is currently being considered in our future updates.

In the meantime, this can be done using FlowJs and Contour (which involves directly working with HTML).

You can find information in our online Epicenter Documentation:

Flow.js and Data Visualization: Graphing with Contour

Hi,

Is this functionality now available in Epicenter’s Interface Builder?

Thanks!

Hi Aditya,

Currently not at this moment.
We do not have a set date when it will become available, but we can alert you.

Hi Geromel,
I’ve got the hang of using contour.js, so I can get around Interface Builder’s (current) limitation.
I found the documentation provided with Contour (http://forio.com/contour/documentation.html, section QuickStart) much more useful than the documentation on graphing provided with Epicenter (https://forio.com/epicenter/docs/public/, section Flow.js and Graphing).
