Abstract
  • Animated cartography is still a new field. It has been experimented with for years, but it has not gained general usage except partially in use by the news media. Nevertheless, certain subjects cry out for displaying the patterns of movement over time, such as historical patterns of migration and settlement, or the movements of continents and ice caps over long periods of geologic time. Studies of social trends, like the spread of freeways or distribution of a product, can also benefit from showing volume changes and geographic pattern over the years. Whatever the subject, animation in the sciences -- including the earth sciences is used in only two basic ways: as a visual display of complex data to aid in problem solving, and to inform and capture the interest of the general public. Are both forms animated cartography?
