ArcGIS Online presentation - blank basemap and delay between slides

Question asked by saskatoonhr on Dec 17, 2015

I just created a slide series of heat maps in AGOL (so much potential here!) showing a time series of events. However, when I run the presentation, there is a pause between the slides, i.e.

  • Shows data for week 1
  • Data disappears for a few seconds, only basemap is visible
  • Shows data for week 2
  • Data disappears for a few seconds, only basemap is visible
  • etc.

The idea was that AGOL would allow us to easily watch the spread of events over space and time. I guess I had assumed the presentation would transition straight from one slide to the next. However, the time lag makes viewing the presentation really choppy. The blank map means that by the time the next dataset displays, you've forgotten what the last one looked like. This small thing makes the whole presentation of very limited utility, and I have had to revert back to boring old static slides animated in PowerPoint.

 

Is this just a function of our network connection or is this normal behaviour? Is this something that will be improved in the future?
