Visual analytics aims to combine the strengths of human and electronic data processing. Visualisation, whereby humans and computers cooperate through graphics, is the means through which this is achieved. Seamless and sophisticated synergies are required for analysing spatio-temporal data and solving spatio-temporal problems. In modern society, spatio-temporal analysis is not solely the business of professional analysts. Many citizens need or would be interested in undertaking analysis of… 

Challenging problems of geospatial visual analytics

Spatio-temporal visual analytics: a vision for 2020s

This work briefly overviews the achievements of the visual analytics research concerning spatio-temporal data analysis, and discusses the major open problems.

Building a Visual Analytics Tool for Location-Based Services

In this chapter, an experimental study to empirically testify whether widely accepted advantages and limitations of 2D and 3D representations are valid for the spatio-temporal data visualization is presented.

Analysis of Mining, Visual Analytics Tools and Techniques in Space and Time

The mission of the research paper is to study the techniques and tools of data mining and visual analytic in space and time.

Cartographic visualization of human trajectory data: overview and analysis

This analysis addresses the main properties associated with (human) trajectory data, the main types of visualisation tasks/objectives that the users may require in order to analyse that data and the high-level classes of techniques for visualising trajectory data.

Integrated snapshots can be captured at any time during the explorative data analysis process and thus become an important component of a storytelling reasoning process, contributing to the growing interest in visual storytelling engaging the public with new experiences.

Visual Analytics: A Comprehensive Overview

A novel categorization of visual-analytics applications from a technical perspective is proposed, which is based on the dimensionality of visualization and the type of interaction, and a comprehensive survey of visual analytics is performed, which examines its evolution from visualization and algorithmic data analysis, and investigates how it is applied in various application domains.

Animating Maps: Visual Analytics Meets GeoWeb 2.0

This chapter proposes a system that utilizes free GIS APIs to visualize spatiotemporal data effectively, and allows a user to create a time slide bar control to connect time and position of various GIS objects on a map and to display them in animated mode.

Interactive Visual Data Analysis

The authors present a top-down perspective on interactive visual data analysis with a focus on concise and clean terminology to facilitate insight generation and knowledge crystallization from large and complex data.



Visual Methods for Analyzing Time-Oriented Data

This paper focuses on the unique role of the parameter time in the context of visually driven data analysis and describes event-based visualization as a promising means to adapt the visualization pipeline to needs and tasks of users.

Introduction: Cognitive Issues in Geographic Information Visualization

By ‘‘success story’’, this work means a scenario in which the creators of a visual analytics tool or approach are not the sole user group, or significant insights into real-world data were generated for decision makers, or target users could actually use the tool to solve real research problems or perform the day-to-day tasks at hand.

Geovisual analytics for spatial decision support: Setting the research agenda

This article summarizes the results of the workshop on Visualization, Analytics & Spatial Decision Support, which took place at the GIScience conference in September 2006, and suggests a new research direction ‘Geovisual Analytics for Spatial decision Support’, which emphasizes the importance of visualization and interactive visual interfaces and the link with the emerging research discipline of Visual Analytics.

A Framework for Augmenting the Visualization of Dynamic Raster Surfaces

Five techniques proposed are spatial and attribute smoothing, temporal interpolation, transformation of the surfaces into a network of morphometric features, the use of a graphic lag or fading and the employment of techniques for conditional interactivity that are appropriate for visualization.

Visual Analytics: Definition, Process, and Challenges

The possibilities to collect and store data increase at a faster rate than the ability to use it for making decisions, and in most applications, raw data has no value in itself; instead the authors want to extract the information contained in it.

Geovisualization of Dynamics, Movement and Change: Key Issues and Developing Approaches in Visualization Research

Theoretical and methodological approaches for exploring and analyzing large datasets with spatial and temporal components were presented, discussed and developed at the meeting in Girona, Catalunya which was held on 5 May 2008 one day before AGILE's 11th International Conference on Geographic Information Science.

Exploratory analysis of spatial and temporal data - a systematic approach

The authors describe in detail and systemize approaches, techniques, and methods for exploring spatial and temporal data in particular, developing a general view of data structures and characteristics and building on top of this a general task typology.

It's About Time: A Conceptual Framework for the Representation of Temporal Dynamics in Geographic Information Systems

Abstract The study of spatiotemporal dynamics is certainly not new, nor is it unique to the field of geography. Nevertheless, addressing complex human and environmental issues such as global warming

Exploratory cartographic visualization: advancing the agenda

Cognitive and Usability Issues in Geovisualization

It is argued that cognitive and usability issues should be considered in the context of six major research themes: 1) geospatial virtual environments (GeoVEs); 2) dynamic representations (including animated and interactive maps); 3) metaphors and schemata in user interface design; 4) individual and group differences; 5) collaborative geovisualization; and 6) evaluating the effectiveness of geov isualization methods.
