Animated Map Icon

One way to add animation to a map is to use icons to represent different locations. These icons can be animated in various ways to indicate different things. For example, a blinking icon could indicate that the location is currently being viewed on the map, while a spinning icon could indicate that the location is being searched for.

Map Icon GIF Considerations

There are many different ways to design map icons, and each method has its own advantages and disadvantages. Some common methods include using simple shapes like circles or squares, using photographs or illustrations of local landmarks, or using 3D models of the buildings or terrain.

No matter what method is used, it’s important to make sure that the icons are easy to understand and visually appealing. They should also be consistent with the overall style of the map and quickly leave the viewer with a specific area to focus on.

Animated Map Formats

Besides GIFs, there are other image formats that can be used for animated map icons. These formats include hd video and Lottie/JSON formats. Lottie format is ideal for the web or embedding within an app due to their small file size, compatibility, and ability to work offline. On the other hand, hd video map icons can provide better quality animations but might be larger in file size.
