Time is a theme that appears in many stories. For instance, some interesting story maps that include time show tracking the spread of diseases like Zika or white nose syndrome (which affects bats), finding patterns in where and when car … Continue reading
With the March update to ArcGIS Online, the Time Aware configurable app template will support live forecast data. The Time Aware app dynamically shows changes in data through time. It supports static and live data while adding support for live … Continue reading
Time Aware is a configurable app template that enables users to visualize time-enabled layers. It enhances the temporal capabilities of the web map, and can be configured to display time in different ways. The Time Aware configurable app includes a slider … Continue reading
Map layers may contain temporal data—an attribute field containing the date and time that something happened. These temporal events can occur in the same place, or can occur in different places, over the course of time. For example, the recorded … Continue reading

In the lead up to London’s big sporting event in July 2012, the symbolic torch will travel the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. The route has been designed to maximize the opportunity for the UK population to view the torch as it makes its way, across 70 days, stopping at over 1000 locations where bearers will parade the torch locally. The torch relay event web map provides a time aware window on the event for locals to follow and for more distant observers to explore.
During this morning’s plenary demonstration, we saw some interesting examples of how webmaps are becoming easier to author (using available ArcGIS Online basemaps), easier to deploy, and “smarter.” ArcGIS webmaps now support temporal services – time aware layers that add additional capabilities to the webmap, like the availability of a time slider. Shown below is an example from the demo this morning which shows production wells in the Teapot Dome Oil Field. Note the time slider below the map, which allows the user to play back the well production over time.
