A Visualization System for Space-Time and Multivariate Patterns (VIS-STAMP)
TLDR
The research reported here integrates computational, visual and cartographic methods to develop a geovisual analytic approach for exploring and understanding spatio-temporal and multivariate patterns. Expand
A Clustering-Based Approach to the Capacitated Facility Location Problem1
TLDR
This research develops a clustering-based location-allocation method to the Capacitated Facility Location Problem, which provides an approximate optimal solution to determine the location and coverage of facilities to serve the demands of a large number of locations. Expand
Early Detection of Terrorism Outbreaks Using Prospective Space–Time Scan Statistics
Terrorism is a complex phenomenon with high uncertainty involving a myriad of dynamic known and unknown factors. It is and will remain a challenge to predict or detect terrorism outbreaks at an earlyExpand
Visualizing Patterns in a Global Terrorism Incident Database
TLDR
We introduce a unified visualization environment that is able to present various types of patterns and thus to facilitate explorations of the incident data from different perspectives. Expand
A Visual Inquiry System for Space-Time and Multivariate Patterns ( VIS-STAMP )
The research reported here integrates computational, visual, and cartographic methods to develop a novel geo-visual analytic strategy for exploring and understanding spatio-temporal and multivariateExpand
Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design 2007, volume 34, pages 767^784
The terrorism database includes more than 27000 terrorism incidents between 1968 and 2006. Each incident record has spatial information (country names for all records and city names for someExpand
Pattern, cognition and spatial information processing : Representations of the spatial layout of architectural design with spatial-semantic analytics
TLDR
In this paper, we review and extend the idea of Alexander’s “pattern language”, especially from the viewpoints of complexity theories, information systems, and human-computer interaction, to explore spatial cognition-based design representations for “intelligent and adaptive/interactive environment” in architecture and urban planning. Expand
A Clustering-Based Approach to a Special Capacitated Facility Location Problem
This paper presents a clustering-based approach to address a special case of the Capacitated Facility Location Problem (CFLP). The goal is to find the optimal locations of a finite set of facilitiesExpand
Design and Validation of Dynamic Hierarchies and Adaptive Layouts Using Spatial Graph Grammars
TLDR
A computational analysis method and design methodology is presented using the spatial graph grammars (SGG) formalism, for the structural complexity of two-dimensional spatial layouts. Expand
