Visitors by time of day : Time where? My server location? The visitors' locations?

The time of day report would be more useful if I could learn which location the time value is based upon. Is it my location? The location of my server? The time at the location of the visitor? UTC? Something else?

 

I can usually answer this kind of question by searching but I have been unsuccessful. 

 

Thanks

I believe the Time is based on whatever timezone you have set in the Admin > View Settings in the right-hand column. You can change it to suit your needs or those of your client.
