Jim K. has been looking at how to animate some things for GPS trails and such, I think he has some ideas here. A generic approach would be beneficial for a number of functions.
Some functionality we're look looking at (or have looked at):
** Animating through multiple (temporal) images (for Weather animations for example).
** Animation of a GPS track, could be images and/or SVG (or some other canvas type thing)
** There was a conversation at one point about adding in some sort of scripting support to GeoMoose that was interpreted on the client. HTML can update itself for example.
** There was also talk of adding in a History recorder that could allow for replaying a user session.
To date I just use a Flash desktop movie maker for these types of things, It's pretty quick to do too. There are free ones and pay for, I like Flashback myself.
Here are a few that I've done recently:
(look for "Video Tutorials")

If you followed last week's "Layer Functions" thread you know that I used the
GeoMOOSE API to create a "Zoom To Layer Extents" button on the metadata results
Our marketing guy asked if it would be possible to create a "slide-show" or
"tour" using similar techniques. At first I thought it would be easy and had
the php return:
var mapWin = window.opener;
var GeoMOOSE = mapWin.GeoMOOSE;
GeoMOOSE.zoomToExtent(-12711115, 6271185,-12665227, 6309521);
GeoMOOSE.addPopup(-12687075, 6290155, 200, 100, "Quickbird Imagery supplied by
GeoMOOSE.zoomToExtent(-12702314, 6719493,-12696849, 6724881);
GeoMOOSE.addPopup(-12701359, 6721881, 200, 100, "Parcels supplied by AltaLIS");
info at http://www.devcheater.com/ outlining the problem, some solutions and
their effect on various browsers. The best approach looks like using XMLHttp
and server-side scripting to get things to wait, but perhaps there's a better way?
