Ausgewählte Tour Tour Chart

The tour chart visualizes data of a tour which is recorded by a device, it can be opened in the toolbar or menu Tour/Tour Chart.

Some graphs show the recorded data and some show computed values. The computed values depend all on the distance which have a tolerance. Distance in GPS devices have a tolerance also, therefore the computed values will never be exactly correct.

Power

When the data source is an ergometer, the power from the ergometer is displayed otherwise the power is computed and can't be very exact because the power depends on the gradient and speed and these data are also computed

Mouse behaviour

Depending on the mouse position and the activated features, the mouse cursor shows the different behaviour for the mouse wheel and left mouse button.

cursor slider mode

Mouse wheel is in slider mode, the mouse wheel will move the active vertical slider

cursor zoom mode

Mouse wheel is in zoom mode, the mouse wheel will zoom in and out the chart

set left slider position

Move vertical slider with hovered mouse

When the mouse is located in the upper or lower vertical part of the chart, the left mouse button click will move the leftmost vertical slider to the current mouse position and the vertical slider is pinned to the mouse until the mouse button is clicked again

set right slider position

Same behaviour as above except that the rightmost vertical slider is moved

cursor west east

Mouse is hovered over a vertical slider, there are 2 vertical sliders in each displayed graph.

When the left mouse button is clicked, the vertical slider is pinned to the mouse horizontal position until a second mouse button is clicked.

Hint for using Tour Chart and Map

When a dragged vertical slider in the tour chart is not moving the slider in the map, ensure that the tour chart has the focus by clicking at the tour chart tab and not in the tour chart itself.

cursor north south

Mouse is hovered over a horizontal slider which is located at the top and bottom of a graph in the tour chart.

when the left mouse button is pressed and hold down, the horizontal slider can be dragged in the vertical direction.

 

Autoscroll when tour chart is zoomed in

auto move slider 1x ... auto move slider 5x

When the mouse is positioned in the zoom position marker area the chart is automatically scrolled until the left or right border of the tour is reached, this behaviour applies also when a vertical slider is dragged.

The autoscroll speed depends on the mouse horizontal position within the y-axis area.

A side effect of this behaviour is, that an animation can be done for the tour in the chart and in the map when a vertical slider is dragged, the <Home> or <End> key can restart the animation.

 

Mouse zoom position

When zooming the chart in or out with the mouse wheel, the horizontal position of the chart will be preserved where the mouse is located (in versions before 12.1 the last mouse double click position was preserved, this is still the behaviour in the map).

 

Panning the Chart

The chart can be panned in horizontal direction when the left mouse button is pressed and hold and the mouse is moved, it requires that the chart is zoomed in.

Panning in vertical direction is not possible, the vertical units are automatically adjusted when panning in horizontal direction.

 

Zoom & Pan Mode

In this mode the chart can be zoomed or panned with the mouse wheel. This is the default mode which can be set in the preference dialog

Interface

Description

Doubleclick

Centers this position in the graph, requires that the chart is zoomed in

Mouse wheel

Zoomes the chart in and out, the vertical units are adjusted automatically to fill the whole visible area with the visible graphs

Alt + Mouse wheel

Same as above but with smaller steps

Ctrl + Mouse wheel

Pans the chart, this requires that the chart is zoomed

Shift + Mouse wheel

Ctrl + Shift + Mouse wheel

Pans the chart with bigger steps

Ctrl + Doubleclick

Switches to mouse slider mode

Mouse Thumb button

Displays the whole tour in the chart


Hint: The chart is recomputed for each mouse wheel move. The performance can be improved by reducing the visible graphs in the chart and to use a small window size. The visible graphs also influence the performance, the altitude graph is faster displayed compared with the cadence graph because the cadence has more lines which needs to be drawn.

 

Slider Mode

In the slider mode the vertical sliders can be moved with the mouse wheel (this is the behaviour in MyTourbook 1.5.0 or older)

 

Interface

Description

Mouse wheel

Moves active slider, the slider is moved for one data point

Ctrl + Mouse wheel

Moves the slider for 10 data points

Ctrl + Shift + Mouse wheel
