  1. I don’t think the animated map is any help. Just too small to appreciate even on National level.

    If your main purpose is to inform, a simple web mapping application showing rainfall data. Timeline functionality is also advisable where user can have control as compared to an animated gif.

    It would also help if you will show Administrative boundaries down to the barangay level.

    Otherwise, if the purpose is other than to inform, the animated map maybe sufficient.
