Using Social Media Content in the Visual Analysis of Movement Data

  title={Using Social Media Content in the Visual Analysis of Movement Data},
  author={Robert Kr{\"u}ger and Steffen Lohmann and Dennis Thom and Harald Bosch and Thomas Ertl},
Data about the movement of people and objects is a rich source for visual analysis. However, understanding the data and inferring user behavior from it is often difficult due to missing context information. The goal of our research is to augment movement data by information derived from social media. In this paper, we present a visual concept that extends movement trajectories with terms extracted from geo-coded Twitter posts. The movement data comes from a large sample of e-bikes equipped with…

Interactive Visual Discovering of Movement Patterns from Sparsely Sampled Geo-tagged Social Media Data

This work proposes a heuristic model to reduce the uncertainty caused by the nature of social media data, and presents an interactive visual analytics system to support the exploration of sparsely sampled trajectory data from social media.

Visual Analysis of Movement Behavior Using Web Data for Context Enrichment

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.

Semantic Enrichment of Movement Behavior with Foursquare–A Visual Analytics Approach

This work suggests to enrich trajectory data with POI information using social media services and shows how semantic insights can be gained, and how to handle semantic uncertainties in time and space, which result from noisy, unprecise, and missing data.

Visual analysis of traffic data based on topic modeling (ChinaVis 2017)

A topic model to analyze the GPS taxi trajectory data is constructed and a metaphor-based glyph is designed to summarize the multi-dimensional attributes of each candidate area to enhance the user’s understanding of area characters by semantics.

Casual analytics: advancing interactive visualization by domain knowledge

This thesis introduces novel approaches at the boundary of generic analysis tools and their domain-specific context to extend the usage of visual analytics to casual users by exploiting domain knowledge for supporting analysis tasks, input validation, and personalized information visualization.

Visual analytics on big data of urban traffic trajectories

The main research results of visual analysis of urban traffic trajectories in recent years are summarized from three main methods: direct visualization, aggregate visualization and feature visualization.

Visual Analysis of Trajectory Data

The major methodologies and interaction techniques in trajectory visual analysis are introduced, followed by its applications, and the problems and challenges in this research area are summarized.

LDA Ensembles for Interactive Exploration and Categorization of Behaviors

This work proposes an approach leveraging topic modeling techniques – LDA (Latent Dirichlet Allocation) Ensembles – to represent categories of typical behaviors by topics that are obtained through topic modeling a behavior collection.

Mobile-Based Intelligent Transportation for Bus Commuters Based on Twitter Analytics

In this paper, we present an intelligent, state-of-the-art, mobile-based transportation system called SAFAR (Safe and Fast around the Road), which provides dynamic information to Karachi bus



Spatiotemporal anomaly detection through visual analysis of geolocated Twitter messages

This work uses a novel cluster analysis approach and distinguish between local event reports and global media reaction to detect spatiotemporal anomalies automatically to allow for an interactive analysis of location-based microblog messages in realtime by means of scalable aggregation and geolocated text visualization.

Visual analytics tools for analysis of movement data

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.

A Visual Backchannel for Large-Scale Events

The Visual Backchannel design provides an evolving, interactive, and multi-faceted visual overview of large-scale ongoing conversations on Twitter, and includes visual saliency for what is happening now and what has just happened in the context of the evolving conversation.

Document Word Clouds: Visualising Web Documents as Tag Clouds to Aid Users in Relevance Decisions

The idea of enhancing the perception of web documents with visualisation techniques borrowed from the tag clouds of Web 2.0 is taken at.

Comparison of Tag Cloud Layouts: Task-Related Performance and Visual Exploration

Results from a comparative study of several tag cloud layouts show differences in task performance, leading to the conclusion that interface designers should carefully select the appropriate tag cloud layout according to the expected user goals.

From Data Analysis and Visualization to Causality Discovery

As data becomes invisible, emerging technologies can help human analysts and decision makers understand, model, and visualize causal relationships.

Earthquake shakes Twitter users: real-time event detection by social sensors

This paper investigates the real-time interaction of events such as earthquakes in Twitter and proposes an algorithm to monitor tweets and to detect a target event and produces a probabilistic spatiotemporal model for the target event that can find the center and the trajectory of the event location.
