Data about movements of various objects are collected in growing amounts by means of current tracking technologies. Traditional approaches to visualization and interactive exploration of movement data cannot cope with data of such sizes. In this research paper we investigate the ways of using aggregation for visual analysis of movement data. We define aggregation methods suitable for movement data and find visualization and interaction techniques to represent results of aggregations and enable… 
A General Framework for Using Aggregation in Visual Exploration of Movement Data
TLDR
The goal of this research has been to systemize the possible approaches to aggregation of movement data into a framework clearly defining what kinds of exploratory tasks each approach is suitable for, and to discuss the appropriate methods of data aggregation and the visualisation techniques representing the results of aggregation.
Visual exploration of big spatio-temporal movement data
TLDR
An integrated solution with three visualization modules: Collision Detection View for visualizing the detailed information of each group, Force Direct Map for the community structure, and Hotspot View for finding which location in the given space is the most popular.
Spatial Generalization and Aggregation of Massive Movement Data
TLDR
A method for spatial generalization and aggregation of movement data, which transforms trajectories into aggregate flows between areas, and introduces local and global numeric measures of the quality of the generalization.

Visual Analysis of Movement Behavior Using Web Data for Context Enrichment
TLDR
This work presents an approach to enrich trajectory data with semantic POI information and shows how additional insights can be gained to enable analysis of movement behavior, using a density-based clustering technique.
Classifying pedestrian movement behaviour from GPS trajectories using visualization and clustering
TLDR
A new geovisual analytics tool specifically designed for movement data that features the classic space-time cube augmented with a novel clustering approach to identify common behaviour is described.
Building Visual Summaries of Clusters of Trajectories
TLDR
A method for building schematic representations of clusters of trajectories that transforms trajectories into aggregate flows between areas on the basis of the spatial distribution of the characteristic points from the trajectories is suggested.
Directional Aggregate Visualization of Large Scale Movement Data
Widespread use of GPS terminals has made it possible to collect geospatial movement data, and visualization is an effective method to understand such data. However, for large scale movement analysis,
Visual Analytics for Geographic Analysis, Exemplified by Different Types of Movement Data
TLDR
The paper considers three types of movement data: data describing movements of a single entity during a long time period, data about simultaneous movements of multiple unrelated entities, and data about simultaneity of multiple related entities.
A framework for progressive mining and querying of movement data
The document describes what was achieved in the project GeoPKDD in the research on visualisation and visual analytics of movement data. The project has brought into existence an array of new methods

Visually driven analysis of movement data by progressive clustering
TLDR
The paper investigates the possibilities of using clustering techniques in visual exploration and analysis of large numbers of trajectories, that is, sequences of time-stamped locations of some moving entities, and suggests the procedure of progressive clustering where a simple distance function with a clear meaning is applied on each step which leads to easily interpretable outcomes.
Visual analytics tools for analysis of movement data
TLDR
It is argued that by using the right visual analytics tools for the analysis of massive collections of movement data, it is possible to effectively support human analysts in understanding movement behaviors and mobility patterns.
Designing Visual Analytics Methods for Massive Collections of Movement Data
TLDR
This study focuses on data describing movements of multiple discrete entities that change their positions in space while preserving their integrity and identity, and defines the possible types of patterns in such movement data on the basis of an abstract model of the data as a mathematical function that maps entities and times onto spatial positions.
Using treemaps for variable selection in spatio-temporal visualisation
TLDR
Enhanced treemaps that incorporate spatial and temporal ordering for exploring a large multivariate spatio-temporal data set and appear to have potential as interactive interfaces for variable selection in spatio -temporal visualisation.
Temporal, geographical and categorical aggregations viewed through coordinated displays: a case study with highway incident data
TLDR
Aggregations were used together with the Snap-Together Visualization system to coordinate the visual displays of aggregates and their content to show rapid access and visibility for a million points.
A Visualization System for Space-Time and Multivariate Patterns (VIS-STAMP)
TLDR
The research reported here integrates computational, visual and cartographic methods to develop a geovisual analytic approach for exploring and understanding spatio-temporal and multivariate patterns that leverages their independent strengths and facilitates a visual exploration of patterns that are difficult to discover otherwise.
Experiments In Migration Mapping By Computer
TLDR
A computer program prepared for this purpose shows that graphical representation is feasible for tables as large as fifty by fifty, and possibly larger, and without loss of spatial resolution.
Traffic mining in a road-network: How does the traffic flow?
TLDR
A graph based modelling of the network traffic is presented which provides insights on the flow of movements within the network and to discover traffic relationships like propagation, split and merge of traffic among the road segments.
