Fairly new to Grafana (have a lot of experience working in Tableau and other data visualization tools) and have built a handful of basic Time Series charts to get a better understanding of how Grafana works.
Currently working with Grafana ver 8.4.2 connected to an InfluxDB database. I would like to use Grafana to create a Wind Direction & Speed timeline. Below is an example I found of the type of chart I am looking to build. Basically the wind speed is plotted over time and then for each datapoint, the direction of the wind is represented by which way the arrow is pointing (North is up, South is down). In this example, the color represents the wind speed (higher velocity is red), however I am not really concerned about the colors right now.
Reading through the Grafana forums and doing some general web searching on similar concepts hasn’t really turned up anything. Plotting the wind speed on a time based chart is fairly straightforward and I have already accomplished that, however having a custom marker that
is dynamically rotated a set amount of degrees based on a value is more complicated. I did see a couple articles and Github issues for Grafana stating that custom markers on a line chart/time series panel isn’t supported - so that might already mean this is a no-go.
Is a chart/visualization like this where the marker is an image and the orientation is data-driven possible in Grafana? Looking for some clarification and guidance. If it is possible, pointing me in the direction to go and/or concepts to dig into would be much appreciated!
