Playing around with QGIS and geodata containing a time dimension (e.g. animal tracking) offered me some nice possibilities. The „geometry generator“ symbology and TimeManager PlugIn enable some nice visualizing workflows without generating new geodata.
The exampe above creates lines between the daily tracking points (4-5 daily) during the „time-manager-loop“ (playback of the movement) – but just for the recent day shown – so: next day, new lines between the daily tour of the animal.
