Reviewed as part of the QuickStart project during Google Season of Docs 2019. The aim is consistency across all OSGeoLive QuickStarts.

The document is fairly long and could use a bit of tightening up. @guygriffiths Please action comments and suggestions you agree with, and ignore those you don't.

I couldn't get it to load on my instance of version 13 but that could be due to my flaky VM.

3) Choose the granularity and frame rate for the animation
4) Click "Go". Note that the animation may take quite a while to appear.
5) Click the "Stop animation" button (where the wizard was) to stop the animation and return the controls to normal.
#. Click the animation wizard button below the lower left corner of the map.

The whole document could be improved by the paragraph sections being numbered steps like this.


Use the left-hand menu to choose a dataset to view. Clicking a dataset (or the + icon to the left of it) will expand the dataset to show the available variables to plot. Choose a variable by clicking on it. The data should appear on the interactive map after a short delay (a progress bar may appear showing the progress of loading image tiles from the WMS server(s)).

It would be better for this document if we chose one scenario and stepped readers through it, rather than listing what you can do. So we should tell them a dataset to choose, then tell them a variable to display and how to color and style the map. That would make this more of a Quickstart. I would be happy to help do this, but don't know enough about the application to write it on my own.
