Ability to animate map pan RRS feed

  • Question

  • V7 allowed passing animate:true when setting the desired view of the map (center point, for example). We use this in delicate parts of the UX where a jarring redraw of the map view would disorient the users sense of location of the thing they're investigating.

    What is the V8 equivalent?

  • Animating between views is not currently supported in V8. V8 uses the HTML5 canvas for rendering as it allows large data sets to be rendered, however, trying to animate the map like V7 isn't very fluid and thus not currently supported.
