Sensor filtering and animated surface shading in Dasher 360

We’ve been busy working on a number of interesting features for Dasher 360 over the last few weeks. The main focus – at least from my side – has been to extend the filtering capability to allow people to filter sensors based on type and their location in the model. Not only that, but the filtering is reflected in realtime in the list of sensors, even when highlighting different areas of the model via the site’s breadcrumbs. I wasn’t sure if this was going to be viable – mainly for performance reasons – but for now it seems to work really well.

The other big push has been around surface shading and getting that properly integrated into the timeline. The timeline is now visible in the public demo and can be used to control the period for which the surface shading gets animated. Eventually the timeline will drive other visualizations, too, whether the plots for individual sensors or for coordinated video feeds (more on this below).

I recorded a quick video to show…
