Time info represents the temporal data of a time-aware layer. The time info class provides information such as date fields that store the start and end times for each feature and the total time span for the layer.
Temporal data is data that represents a state in time. You can to step through periods of time to reveal patterns and trends in your data. With temporal data, you can visualize and analyze:
- Moving objects (e.g. planes, satellites, storms),
- Events (e.g. accidents or earthquakes),
- Sensor data (e.g. stream gauges, weather station readings), or
- Variable characteristics (e.g. national or regional population).

The time extent defines the start time and end time for all data in the layer.more details
The time interval defines the granularity of the temporal data and allows you to visualize the data at specified intervals using the time slider widget.more details

The name of the class. The declared class name is formatted as
- endField String
The name of the field containing the end time information.
The time extent defines the start time and end time for all data in the layer.
- Default Value:null
const start = featureLayer.timeInfo.fullTimeExtent.start; const end = featureLayer.timeInfo.fullTimeExtent.end; const range = end - start; // milliseconds const days = range / ( 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24 ); // days console.log("The layer temporal extent is", days, "days.");
The time interval defines the granularity of the temporal data and allows you to visualize the data at specified intervals using the time slider widget. Usually temporal data is collected at regular intervals such as every hour or every day.
- startField String
The name of the field containing the start time information.
The name of the field used to join or group discrete locations. For example, for hurricane tracks, trackIdField can be the hurricane name field.
