Animated map of data using cartoDB

In my last post I shared a map experiment using data collected on the smartphone with the Fulcrum app and uploaded to cartoDB.

Another option in cartoDB is animation: [click here for map since WordPress won’t allow iframe embeds].

Here I’ve set the base map background to a black outline, imported a shapefile of UKY buildings, and animated each data point by the order in which it was added.

These are relatively simple to do using the entry-level membership of cartoDB (free, but limited to five data layers or tables only). But I thought I’d share them anyway since cartoDB has some design options not found in ArcGIS.com, the usual go-to for class-based projects such as this.
