SONAR truckifies time-series data for the freight markets. By taking in data from across the marketplace and putting it into a visual layer that is presented on a map, a user can compare various markets over-time and understand how different markets are shaping up. Each map has a hover-bubble which allows the user to identify local market conditions of all data-sets by hovering over the local market.
SONAR comes with a technical charting platform that allows users to visualize data in multiple formats and charting types. The data can then be studied using technical studies that help users identify trends and volatility in data-sets. Multiple data-sets can be overlayed, giving the users the ability to compare how different data-sets correlate. Like the mapping tool, all charts are coded for geography, allowing the user to compare multiple markets on the same charts.
