Still an unusual sight, but why not? Here we present an example of how to display a Skyscaper-Remodelling-Schedule in a Time-Location Diagram.
The vertical axis represents the levels / floors of the building. Alongside this axis the map of the skyscraper facilitates the connection between activities and level/location of work.
The horizontal axis represents the time axis.
As a result there is a chart, comparable to a standard Gantt view – but enhanced with the location dimension.
The tasks are mainly displayed as ribbons or lines. They represent how the different crafts are moving trough the building. An overlapping of ribbons indicates that different crafts are planned in the same location at the same time.That may be a clash.
The horizontal distance between two neighboring crafts represents the “buffer” between them.
See how to create a second Time-distance-diagram, that contains a different project. That method can be used either for showing separate distance areas in one project but also to display different stages of the same project: Displaying the main schedule and a scenario schedule on one page.

Sometimes you need to display multiple tasks at the same place – or need to overlap each other. TILOS has the possibility to use transparent colors, that support the desplay of overlapping tasks. The transparent color can be set not only as a solid background color but also as a transparent part of a pattern.
Take the tagged color from the color picker to select the transparent color:
Create different looking transparent task shapes:
Use the object order and the layer order additionally to order the tasks and get the desired look by this way.
