Torque Time Lapse Map Animations Outside of CartoDB

So you have some data in a PostGIS database that you'd like to animate on a map. No problem!

In this session, I will walk through the steps for using CartoDB's excellent Torque library for creating animated map visualizations outside of a full CartoDB installation. This involves adding some functions to your PostGIS database, setting up a Windshaft tile server, setting up a minimal version of the CartoDB SQL API, then creating the HTML and CartoCSS to present your animation on a Leaflet map. I will also present a demonstration project using a stand-alone Torque setup.
