This article summarizes the results of the workshop on Visualization, Analytics & Spatial Decision Support, which took place at the GIScience conference in September 2006. The discussions at the workshop and analysis of the state of the art have revealed a need in concerted cross‐disciplinary efforts to achieve substantial progress in supporting space‐related decision making. The size and complexity of real‐life problems together with their ill‐defined nature call for a true synergy between the… Expand
GeoVisual analytics, time to focus on time
TLDR
This issue of Information Visualization showcases research activities related to dealing with time in geovisual analytics and encourages approaches that integrate visualization with data mining, database processing, optimization, and other computational methods for utilizing and emphasizing the temporal characteristics of geographic information in rich, novel, and useful ways. Expand
GeoVA(t) – Geospatial Visual Analytics: Focus on Time
This issue has a specific focus on TIME. The research articles contributed here deal with the temporal nature of geospatial phenomena in novel and sophisticated ways in the context of geospatialExpand
GeoVA(t) – Geospatial visual analytics: focus on time
TLDR
The focus of this special issue is TIME in the specific context of geospatial visual analytics and the data and methods used to understand them in the context of visual analytics. Expand
A chorem-based approach for visually analyzing spatial data
TLDR
This work has proposed the adoption of chorems as an innovative method to visually summarize information from spatial databases and implemented an XML-based language, named ChorML, able to both specify chorems characterizing a map and store the information useful to their manipulation. Expand
Enabling collaborative GeoVisual analytics: Systems, techniques, and research challenges
TLDR
It is concluded that GVA is moving toward more effective support of multidisciplinary and cross‐domain collaborative analysis, but to materialize this potential, research is needed to improve the support for hybrid collaborative scenarios, cross‐device collaboration, and support for time‐critical and long‐term analysis. Expand
ADVICE: Decision Support for Complex Geospatial Decision Making Tasks
TLDR
This work lays out the design of a decision support system called ADVICE as a module that augments geospatial data overlay systems that allows users to reason about the impact of data and possesses several task-centered features that apply the science of cognitive decision making to its interface. Expand
Editorial From Geovisualisation Toward Geovisual Analytics
In this special issue, the ongoing work of the ICA Commission on Geovisualisation (formerly on Visualisation and Virtual Environments) is presented. The Commission has always been convinced thatExpand
Detecting spatial features from data-maps: the visual intersection of data as support to decision-making
TLDR
The paper shows the developments in geo-visualisation to support and improve the processes of planning and decision-making and describes the methodology used for sharing the data collected during an Interreg IVB NWE Project named “CoDe24”. Expand
Challenging problems of geospatial visual analytics
TLDR
Visual analytics is conceived as a multidisciplinary research field in which scientists specializing in information visualization, scientific visualization, and geographic visualization closely cooperate with researchers from analytical disciplines on developing new approaches to solving complex problems faced by the modern society.

Developing a conceptual framework for visually-enabled geocollaboration
TLDR
It is argued that, to support collaboration with geospatial information, specific attention must be given to tools that mediate understanding and support negotiation among participants and that visual representations have a particularly important role to play as mediators of geocollaborative activities. Expand
A Situated Knowledge Representation of Geographical Information
TLDR
The intent here is to support different perspectives onto GIS resources that researchers may legitimately take, and to capture and compute with aspects of epistemology, to complement the ontologies that are currently receiving much attention in the GIScience community. Expand

A multiple view approach to support common ground in distributed and synchronous geo-collaboration
TLDR
It is argued that a collaborative workspace, which includes multiple role-specific views coordinated with a team view, affords a clear separation between role- Specific and shared data, enables the team to filter out role- specific details and share strategic knowledge, and allows serendipitous learning about knowledge and expertise within the team.
