Maps with timeline
Timeline is important factor of GIS data. Multiple geographical features exists only is some timespans - political borders, transportation lines etc. For viewer observation of this changes can be very valuable.
With ShareMap changing static map to animated one is very simple - it just matter of activation Map Animation inside map options. When this feature is activated every component (line, point, container etc.) has new field - timestamp.
Editor can decide when object should appear and when it should cease to be visible to exist. Date formats can be more or less precise.
- 490 BCE (Battle of Marathon)
- 1492 (discovery of America)
- 1815-07 (Vienna Congress)
- 1787-09-17 (US constitution)
- 1941-12-07 07:51 (first hits on Pearl Harbour)
In last step editor can add optional description for each timeline position. Even if multiple events happened in one year there will only one description.
Animation feature is still under development if you would like to use this feature, but you have some problems please let us know.
