Animating

  • Under Consideration
Is there anyway that layers can automatically cycle through, instead of personally turning on and off the layer? For example, the data set I'm working with is Mexico homicides by year and each year is a layer. I would love if these layers would automatically cycle through. Any ideas?

Interesting - we support a dataset that has time as one of the columns and can animate it, but we hadn't considered going across datasets themselves.

You could do this with our API - so it could sit on an embedded page. Would that be useful? We could probably add it to our examples if you have a Map that you've already made?

Andrew,

I created a thematic map showing the number of homicides in Mexico from 1997-2009. Let me know if you will be able to use this map. If so, go forth with it.

Thanks,
