Animated Map

A map chart can be an excellent choice to display a flow of data across geographical areas such as countries, lands, etc.

Good to know


  • Animated maps offer an easy-to-understand representation of information.


  • If too much dynamic information is displayed on the map, it could divert the users' short-term visual memory.


Be sure to make simple animated maps and charts to avoid overloading the visual working memory.
