**to sum it up- lets say i have 4 things i am looking at over a time period. they can be true or false. I am trying to notice their state (whether they are true or false), and when all 4 are true at the same time be alerted. But i want to see the history of when they become true. Lets say your trying to tell when the big 3 of the miami heat are in any given place. You would need to know if Chris Bosh is present at what given times, when Wade is present at what given times, and when Lebron James is present at the given times. Hence you want to notice the any occurrence in time when all 3 are present at the same instance in time (you have Bosh, Wade and James present or true at the same time. **
Lets consider the Game of Clue. Lets say one is trying to solve a murder by figuring out when 3 events occurred at the same time. You need a person place and a thing.
so if i have Mr Bob Saget , in the living room , with a clawhammer all occurring at 8am then i solved my murder.
however if i only have Donald trump in the living room at 8am and then the axe at 10am i didnt solve my murder because i need all 3 things to occur at the same time.
This is one way i thought to represent these 3 boolean variables needing to be true at once (you need the Xs to all occur in the same column and then you can highlight it). Are there any other ways to represent this information?
Also what if i dynamically wanted to change the time filter , to say rather than 1 hour chunks 1 minute chunks (i could re draw the lines to a different scale and plot the xs again).
also any suggestions for tags?
below is other food for thought I am using to try and compose alternative ideas.
