Depending on the type of simulation that has been run, different charts are available. A chart is created by selecting outputs in the list. The player will attempt to create a chart which suites the selected output, but if you want a specific chart you can select the chart type from the menu.

<h2>Results</h2> Lists all available simulation outputs. When you select an output in the list, a chart is automatically created for you. If you want a specific type of chart, either click the corresponding button in the menu or right-click and select the chart from the menu that appears.
<h3>Search</h3> The search box allows you to filter out outputs based on the information entered below. * Name - Search for an output whos name contains the text entered in this field. * Index - Display outputs for a specific index/contaminant. * Type - Select a specific type of output.
<h2>Charts</h2> When you select an output in the Results list, a chart will automatically be created which is titled “Quickview”. This chart is replaced as soon as you select other outputs in the list. To retain the chart, you must create a chart using the menu buttons.
Each chart is given a page identified by the title of the chart. To change the properties of the chart, you can either use the buttons beneath in the Plot box, or right-click the chart and select Edit from the menu.
<h3>Types of charts</h3> <a name=“timechart”/> * Time chart - A time chart will plot the selected outputs against time. When you plot a probabilistic output, by default the mean value is displayed. To select other statistics you must edit the chart.
<a name=“scatterchart”/> * Scatter chart - The scatter chart plots one or more outputs against another output. For deterministic simulations, values for all time points are plotted. For probabilistic simulations, values for a given time point are plotted. For more settings, edit the chart.
<a name=“histogram”/> * Histogram - Displays a histogram for the selected outputs at a given time point. To control the number of bins and other settings, edit the chart.
<a name=“tornadochart”/> * Tornado - The tornado chart is used for sensitivity analysis. It displays the impact of uncertain parameters on one output by displaying correlation coefficients in a horizontal bar diagram. You can select which sensitivity indices to display from the Plot box below. To specify which parameters to include, as well as other settings, edit the chart.
<h2>Exporting data</h2> You can export data for a given chart either to an Excel file. Right-click the chart and select Export data….
