Characterizing the Swarm Movement on Map for Spatial Visualization

  title={Characterizing the Swarm Movement on Map for Spatial Visualization},
  author={Chandan Kumar and Wilko Heuten and Susanne CJ Boll},
Visualization of maps to explore relevant geographic areas is one of the common practices in spatial decision scenarios. However visualizing geographic distribution with multidimensional criteria becomes a nontrivial setup in the conventional point based map space. In this work we present a novel method to generalize from point data to spatial distributions, captivating on the swarm intelligence. We exploit the particle swarm optimization (PSO) framework, where particles represent geographic…

A Visual Interactive System for Spatial Querying and Ranking of Geographic Regions
A visual interactive system that goes beyond the explicit locations, and support the search and exploration of geographic regions, and allows user to illustrate their geographic regions of interest via spatial querying on map interface, and subsequently search for the related relevant regions.
Land-use spatial optimization based on PSO algorithm
Simulation results revealed that the particle swarm optimization model has the ability to utilize the quantity and spatial structure and demonstrated that it can be used to stimulate the landscape pattern in designing the appropriate optimization environment.
Interactive Exploration of Geographic Regions with Web-based Keyword Distributions
This work proposes a system that abstracts from the places and instead generates the makeup of a region based on extracted keywords the authors find on the Web pages of the region, which can be used to identify and compare other suitable regions which exhibit a similar fingerprint.
Assessing end-user interaction for multi-criteria local search with heatmap and icon-based visualizations
This research presents a grid-based interactive interface where users can select multiple criteria of interests and explore the relevant spatial regions via aggregated heatmap visualizations and finds that heatgrid visualization for local search performs as good as the more popular marker based interface.
Geographic Visualization: Concepts, Tools and Applications
The text covers the impact of three-dimensional displays on user interaction along with the potentialities in animation and clearly explains how to create temporally sensitive visualizations.
