Animation in ArcMap Tutorial
IN THIS TUTORIAL • Exercise 1: Organizing your data in ArcCatalog
• Exercise 2: Viewing an animation
• Exercise 3: Creating a temporal animation • Exercise 4: Animating data in a graph through time
Animations can be created in ArcMap™, ArcScene™ or ArcGlobe™. Animations allow you toeffectively visualize and analyze your data by changing display properties of layers, the camera, or the map extent. By altering layer properties, such as the time slice that is displayed or layer visibility and transparency, you can create interesting animations that can be used to analyze data through time or to view information in various layers. By altering the extent (ArcMap) or the cameraposition (ArcScene or ArcGlobe), you can create an animation that moves around a map, scene or globe. Examples of applications that would benefit from being viewed as an animation include: • The occurrence of events through time, such as hurricanes or precipitation, the spread of a disease, or population change • The movement of an object, such as a car, through a landscape • Visualizing...
