Some visualizations can be created with an animation variable. For information about creating visualizations with an animation variable, see Detailed Tab .
To actually animate the visualization, you must switch to Explore mode. (For more information about switching to Explore mode, see Exploring Visualizations .) After switching to explore mode, you will notice that the animation controllers displayed below a graph are now enabled. These controllers allow you to initiate the animation and specify the range of data or the groups displayed in each slice. By animating the visualization with these controls, you can explore the differences between groups and ranges of data.
