  author={Chandan Kumar and Wilko Heuten and Susanne 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… CONTINUE READING
