GIS provides new capabilities to show changes over time. The ability to "animate" the changes in geographic locations over short or long time durations can help the viewer better understand the situation or event. The animation can also be used to capture the attention of viewers of all ages much better then static map portrayals. Examples from the Battle of Brandywine from the American Revolution will be used to illustrate these techniques.
