Here you can display traffic trajectories and various other heat-maps (toolbox on the right), draw virtual areas and define traffic movements on the scene on which you want to count traffic (toolbox on the left), narrow your search using the timeline (bottom), or filter traffic by vehicle types (filters on the right).
