Creating Animated Maps with CARTO Builder

Temporal data representation is a great way to communicate information with both style and analysis. With Torque.js  data can be aggregated either in time or space.

CARTO has invented a completely new way of aggregating geospatial data for both time and space and this functionality is something that you can continue to use in CARTO Builder.

As you browse the different aggregation methods  you will notice that there is one method that will let you aggregate your data by time. This causes your data to become animated. You can animate your data based on a date type or numeric column. Also  an addition that we’ve included in CARTO Builder is a histogram chart  which substitutes for the old Torque scrub bar. Now you can see the distribution of your data over time  filter between two dates  or just animate it like in the good old times.

Start now with CARTO Builder and get the most out of your data.

Time aggregations are very useful to find, show, and understand temporal trends such as seeing how the world reacts to a particular topic, or how your business expands in new locations.

Happy data analyzing!
