I am new at animation and trying to do a simple time layer for hurricane Jimena. See my attachment to determine what I am doing wrong. I was hoping to demonstrate this in a staff meeting tomorrow! Please provide simple step by step if possible
Mapping Center Answer:
You are on the right track. You have selected 'YYYYMMDDhhmmss' as the date/time format for your "Create Time Layer Animation." However, the data in your 'DTG' field has a format of 'YYYYMMDDhh.' To remedy this, add a new field to your table. Name it TLA. While this field can be numeric or text, I would opt for text. Calculate the new TLA field so that the date/time value format matches the "Create Time Layer Animation" date/time format. You should then be able to walk through the wizard and create your animation.
