  author={Robert Laurini and Hafida Belbachir and Zina Bouattou},
In recent years, we have seen a growing number of location-based sensors used to measure increasingly diverse phenomena. Therefore, we consider the increasing need to efficiently manage the huge amount of data collected from located wireless sensor networks (WSN). In some phenomena, it is fundamental to generate maps in real time. Data can be grouped into web-cartography for diverse purposes; so finally, we develop a web-based mapping on demand. In this paper, in addition to cartographic… 

Multi-agent system approach for improved real-time visual summaries of geographical data streams

This approach relies on a multi-agent framework; an extraction knowledge agent is able to extract important spatiotemporal patterns of data streams coming from a sensor network as interesting regions, and a visualisation agent which displays those patterns as simplified maps.

This paper focuses on legends in a separate display area because of their higher potential for visualization and analysis and their role in smart functionality for the legend.

for Interactive

Volume visualization of large data sets suffers from the same problem that many other visualization modalities suffer from: either one can visualize the entire data set and loose small details or

Strategies of Real-time Cartography

Possibility for cartographic communication have been greatly expanded with such interactive cartographic computer systems, and a key concept in the power and flexibility of such interactive systems is that of real and virtual maps and transformations that can be made between them.

A task by data type taxonomy with seven data types and seven tasks (overview, zoom, filter, details-on-demand, relate, history, and extracts) is offered.

Visualizing Uncertainty in Natural Hazards

A typology for uncertainty visualization was presented which tries to map data, uncertainty, and tasks with the appropriate visual presentation to give the user some guidance about the visual representations for the different types of uncertainty.

How to Enhance Cartographic Visualisations of Natural Hazards Assessment Results

Suggestions for enhanced hazard visualisations to facilitate hazard management tasks and decision making are offered and improvements for important cartographic elements are presented.
