Animated Visualization for Constrained Displays
Animation is often utilized to augment visualization software.
We have also found animation useful in enhancinging the visualization of static geospatial data from the 2000 U.S. Census.
Cenimation gains display resolution through time to accomodate very small displays. Even for small geographic census areas, minorities are given a fair shot at available screen real estate. Instead of being relegated to a few available pixels, the can fill the entire display, albeit for a few moments only.
Nationalities and Population are well represeted. Careful use of color, and a bubbling effect in small, populous areas, delivers the data's message.
