Why does the one day average not match the graph?

On the attached chart, it lists the one day average as 97, but if you look at the graph, it does not appear to average out to anything close to 97. Anybody understand what’s going on?

Hi @mpurple,

On the graph, you are selected on the “10-minute average.” You can change this setting by clicking on the box with a gear in the top-left corner and changing the “Averaging period” to “1-hour.”

Hi @Ethan – I experimented with that, but it doesn’t seem to solve the underlying question of whether or not the graph matches the data-- see attached image.

Oh, wait, I think I’ve got it – it’s not saying what is the past day average, or the past week average, it’s saying what do the days and the weeks in general average out to during the timeframe shown. Do I have it right now?

I see; my apologies for the misunderstanding.

The differences are due to the way the averages are calculated. The graph average is a true average, while the map markers display a weighted moving average.

We plan on synchronizing these averages in the future.

Ah, weighted moving average makes total sense-- thank you!
