I want to create and add a time-lapse of what i have been doing in Open Street Mapping. Is this possible?
My advice would be to create a series of screenshot images and then make an animated GIF out of them. You can then use that GIF as an image in your story map.
Yeah, that was my first thought, but I have seen a previous storymap where they had a slide bar that allowed them to slide it left and right and it showed the map before edits and then as you slid the bar it added their edits.
For context, what I originally wanted to do was animate a dataset I had of logging sale units over the course of 40 years. The dataset had about 14,000 polygons. I tried using the time enabled playback tools but the end result was garbage. The data would blink with significant pregnant pauses between intervals and not all data would display anyways. The data was symbolized simply as a solid fill color, too.
This is why I went with the animated GIF option instead.
