Does anybody have code or tips for animating ImageMapType overlays in GWT Maps V3?

I have several layers of time dependent data I'd like to animate. I've tried two different strategies and both seem to result in a flash of an empty base map when transitioning between time steps.

I tried using getOverlayMapTypes().setAt(i, overlay) to "replace" the existing time step.

I also tried loading all the time steps and looping through them setting the opacity of the overlays of the new time step to a positive value and setting the opacity of the existing layers to 0.

Both strategies seem to still leave a flash of a blank basemap between changes when viewing on Chrome (Version 52.0.2743.116 (64-bit) on Linux anyway).

Thanks.

If you are inclined to donate, then getting a matching donation seems like a pretty good way to do it.

I pano'd +Teresa Lamb 's sunset since the Goog no longer seems to allow one to create them and seems to be sporadic about doing it automatically.

I use +Pocket​ to save articles I'm interested in reading later. At the end of last year they told me l was among the top 5% of users as far as articles saved. You'd think they'd know me pretty well. Today the sent me an email touting their new customized recommendations. Their first recommendation was on the topic of iPhone settings. I guess they don't know me that well after all. I didn't bother to scroll through the rest of the list.

American Beautyberry

This is my American Beautyberry. It's a native to the area. I like the color and I thought it would be a good choice in the beds under the trees near the house. The plant has struggled over the three years since we planted it. Half of it froze off the first winter and it seems to be reaching for more light in spite of being an "understory" plant. Finally, this year it has berries for the first time.
