Output Canvas Features
Following are some features of the Output Canvas.
• Show multiple groups of teacups that each contain multiple teacups. Within a group, consistent scaling is maintained for comparison.
• Data shown on a canvas is typically based on multiple objects; for example, all the reservoirs in a basin. The data can be on the object itself or on an accompanying data object.
• On a Teacup, show marker lines and text values representing key levels.
• All colors and text fonts are user settings so they can be changed as desired.
• Bounding boxed and the Legend are optional components that you can configure.
• Flow Line groups can be created to represent a river network.
• Flow Lines get thicker as their values increase. The thickness is relative to the values in all Flow Lines in the group.
• Flow Lines change color and line type as the value crosses user defined thresholds. For example, a line could turn red if the flow drops below a minimum flow.
• RiverWare Object icons can be added to the canvas for reference. Labels and dynamic text can be added below them as well as bounding boxes.
• Images can be added to the canvas as Background or Foreground Images.
• Free standing configurable text can be added to the canvas. This text can be a string, reference a slot value (or two values), or show the current timestep.
• The data shown is typically for a specific timestep. Controls at the bottom of the device allow you to scroll through the timesteps or even animate the time range.
• The Output Canvas can be exported as an image for use in other applications or included as an image in a Model Report.
• The Output Canvas can be exported as a video/movie file. See Export Video for more information on exporting a video.
• Additional data visualizations will be made available on the Output Canvas in future releases.
The remainder of this section describes how to create, configure, and view the Output Canvas. See Instructions for Creating a Teacup Diagram for instructions on creating a teacup diagram.
