Timeline Animation Tool in Viz for Phenology Data
phenology data visualization
Answer

I tried the animation tool in vizualization system for Phenology layers of Tree/Shrub Date of Budburst and for All Green Up and it seems that it does not work for these layers.
I know that the Budburst/Green Up data are different to for example air temperature data as visualization shows only one single date (date of budburst for example) instead of continous observations. But still it would make sense that the animation would show how the budburst was progressing in time: the icons of leaf in different colors would pop up right at the time of budburst when moving in time, means it would follow the legend.
Let´s say I choose budburst in Europe, time interval from Feb 1 to April 30. Ideal result is that the animation shows the icons popping up to the map as the budburst of trees progress through Europe at study sites from south to north.
Thanks

Hi Bara,

Yes, currently, the map shows Green-up and Budburst measurements for the entire year. We can look at changing the query so it shows monthly data instead of yearly.

Hi Bara,

Wanted to let you know that the animation tool does allow you to create an animation with a 1 day per year interval which will allow you to see changes from year to year.  Just select '1 day per year' in the record drop down menu. Let me know if that is useful for you.

Thanks,
Cornell
