So the problem is a follows, I would like to show user's location overlaid on a map, but the geo data for each user is only pulled from the server every 5 minutes or so, thus there is a decrease in accuracy as time goes on before the next icon refresh, upon which the avatar will move to represent the users new current location, and the cycle starts again. Has anyone got any ideas?
So far, I have:
The Avatar dims as time since the last update increases. (Opacity = Accuracy)
There is a radial level going around (or a straight one above or beside) that empties as the time since the last update increases or the other way around. (Guage level = accuracy)
Avatar size increases on map to depict the increase in distance (radius) that the user could be from that point. Contracting again upon refresh.
