Animated mapping enables the user to add a temporal (i.e. time based) component to a map, so you can see change in some element of your data over time. MAPCITE software enables you to create a heatmap and then render it into a seamless video using the Animation tool without any technical knowledge.
To load a dataset into the animation tool requires the user to input the visualisation range (i.e. start date/finish date) and select the number of frames required, then click run. The MAPCITE animation tool renders the images and collates at equal intervals and presents an animated playback file to the user. This can then be recorded direct from the screen.
