This chapter discusses theories and methods for analyzing the interrelationship of human activities in space and time, focusing on time geography; and elegant and powerful framework. The relevance of time geography for analyzing real world transportation and communication systems has improved tremendously in recent years with the rise of geographic information technologies such as geographic information systems (GIS) and the global positioning system (GPS). At the same time, information… Expand
A GIS-based time-geographic approach of studying individual activities and interactions in a hybrid physical–virtual space
Modern information and communication technologies (ICT) are changing human activity and travel patterns that could have significant implications to our everyday lives and the human organization ofExpand
Rethinking Time Geography in the Information Age
TLDR
A novel conceptual framework for time geography is proposed, whereby people's space–time behavior is modeled not just in a three-dimensional space but in a multidimensional space, and can naturally accommodate activity in cyberspace as well as in physical space. Expand
Revisiting Hägerstrand’s time-geographic framework for individual activities in the age of instant access
TLDR
The basic concepts of Hägerstrand's time geography are re-visited and it is suggested that the framework falls short of providing a complete view of human activities with their space-time constraints in the Age of Instant Access. Expand
Visualizing and Analyzing Activities in an Integrated Space-Time Environment
TLDR
This study adopts the three-dimensional orthogonal space-time system in the temporal GIS design and develops representation and analysis functions related to space- time paths and individual activities. Expand
Daily mobility in Grenoble metropolitan region, France : applied GIS methods in time geographical research
Time-geography is one of the earliest analytical perspectives to study human activities and movements in space-time. With the increasing availability of geo-referenced individual level data and moreExpand
Testing the Usability of Time-Geographic Maps for Crime Mapping
TLDR
The problem of crime activities that are not amenable to point-based mapping, potential alternative visualization methods using time-geographic techniques, and the procedures and results of usability tests wherein participants were asked to interpret maps that incorporated various time-Geographic ­attributes are discussed. Expand
Place-Based versus People-Based Accessibility
This paper argues that traditional place-based measures of accessibility should be enhanced and complemented with people-based measures that are more sensitive to individual activity patterns andExpand
Space-Time Behavior Research and Application in China
The space-time behavior approach has become an influential methodology in Chinese urban geography. This chapter provides an overview of space-time behavior research in China, introducing theoreticalExpand
The complexities of everyday life : balancing practical and realistic approaches to modelling probable presence in space - time
This paper concerns itself with issues of complexity, simulation, time, and dynamics in the ongoing search for operational models in social science. It considers the role of time and space in ‘dailyExpand
A Space-Time GIS for Visualizing and Analyzing Clusters in Large Tracking Datasets
TLDR
The space-time GIS, together with the aggregation methods supported by the station concept, offers a useful exploratory analysis environment to support the investigation of hidden spatiotemporal patterns in large trajectory datasets of moving objects. Expand

TLDR
Several GIS-based three-dimensional (3D) geovisualization methods for dealing with the spatial and temporal dimensions of human activity-travel patterns at the same time while avoiding the interpretative complexity of multivariate pattern generalization or recognition methods are described. Expand
