I only have basic GIS skills and wanted some advice or direction.
I'm only practising with a smaller dataset at the moment though my other files are much larger 10,000+ so don't know if it's possible or if I would have to separate the data by years.
Essentially I have a CSV file with the names of ancestors name, birth year, birth location, mother, father, and the coordinates of the birth location.
I wanted to create a time series / animation of their chronological birth order. I've got them in a basic map at the moment on QGIS as that is all I have access to (I don't know if that makes a difference) and span across America and Europe.
I had a look at TIME MANAGER but that seems outdated (I couldn't install it) and read that the plugin temporal profile may be good for this, however I need to convert my CSV file to a raster I believe, but I cannot understand how the rasterize would work on my CSV file because it requires output extent (I don't understand what this is) I had a look at my file and it states 0,0,0,0.
Am I going about this the right way or am I completely off track. Also I've seen people do this on YouTube with time manager but with times, can I do this just with years?
