- Only point data is supported. If you have lines or polygons, you will need to convert them using something like
ST_PointOnSurface, or a couple of BUILDER analysis such as selecting points in polygons or creating centroids from geometries.
- Your dataset needs to have a date field. Numeric fields also work but selecting this type of column will not aggregate your data in temporal buckets such as months, days, years and so on. You can transform string/numeric fields into dates using
- Only one Torque layer (heatmap, animated...) can be shown in a BUILDER map.
If your dataset already covers these points, as explained in the guide, you basically need to:
- Select your layer.
ANIMATED in the aggregation carousel at the top of the
- Select your date field.
After the 2nd point, BUILDER will automatically style your layer as animated and add a time series widget (aka time slider) to your map.
