STEMgis Animations - Decline in Tiger Population and Distribution

Animation showing the decline of Tiger Distribution from 1900 to 1980.

Note how the Caspian Tiger became extinct in the 1970's.

Technical detail. The animation is shown in orthographic projection. The tiger distribution is loaded within STEMgis as one spatial feature or object, in this case a polypolygon. Its spatial definition changes through time enabling the animation. Any attributes associated with this feature may also change through time.

You can also see an interactive SVG map of Tiger Distribution on the web-mapping page.
