Use the amazing D3 library to animate a path on a Leaflet map
Voici un tuto sympa pour faire des maps animées avec leaflet (la lib JS que l’on a retenu pour remplacer mapstraction) + D3.JS :
Viewing location data that varies through time on a static map is fun, but viewing it on an animated map is a lot more fun. Recently, online map lovers were excited by Chris Whong’s Day in the Life of a NYC Taxi map in which he used D3 to animate taxi paths on a Leaflet map. Fortunately for developers, Chris was generous with his time and code. He described the approach he used in a two-part techblog. Using code snippets from Chris, Mike Bostock (D3′s creator), d3noob as well as others, we break down the process of creating an animated path in Leaflet with D3.
