The generalized Wigner function is able to represent light distributions that contain spatial and temporal information. The use of such a generalized Wigner distribution function for analysis and understanding of temporally restricted superresolving systems is demonstrated. These systems gain spatial resolution by conversion of the temporal degrees of freedom to spatial degrees of freedom.
