Preloader GIF Design
Instead of simply displaying a loading percentage or a 2D graphic while the main application was loading, I wanted to reinforce that the map is 3D by using a small 3D GIF animation.
I rendered out a small portion of the map including the library as a main landmark. This then loops through a full rotation to give the sense of an endless animation. Below the GIF I will display a loading percentage to notify the user of current progress.
