I have a large data set of points on a map and a date. I want the points to appear on a map and disappear based on their date over time. Are there any applications that would do this out of the box? I was hoping Google Earth might be of use but I'm scratching my head. Basically this is what I need to do:
(I realize this was done with Processing which I have used, but I would need some direction on how to do this in Processing)
I was going to suggest something like Processing or OpenFrameworks for this. Hell, even Unity game engine would probably work.
Obviously, you would need to write the code for it. Not sure anything like this exists where you just drop in a csv file or whatever.
Google fusion tables.
You might need to go frame by frame if you want it animated, but you can definitely drop in a CSV file and have it display markers on a map.
for processing (or other manual methods) you'll need a zipcode to geo map:
Also, mapquest (really!) provides a city name to latitude/longitude lookup with this format:

it returns a json file with lat and lon variables and some other info.
google and open streetmap has similar lookups, but will only allow a certin number of requests per day.
