5 Animations

20200220 Animations can add considerable insight to any data analysis and can communicate quite effectively the story that the data is telling. The MLHub package, animate, illustrates animations.

The sports animation used here is based on example R code posted to Twitter by Victor Yu, in 2018. The data comes from the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).

To get started:

$ ml install animate
$ ml configure animate

A demonstration of generating an animation is available through the demo command. The build command can be used to generate a similar animation from user supplied data.
