Many important planning decisions in society and business depend on proper knowledge and a correct understanding of movement, be it in transportation, logistics, biology, or the life sciences. Today the widespread use of mobile phones and technologies like GPS and RFID provides an immense amount of data on location and movement. What is needed are new methods of visualization and algorithmic data analysis that are tightly integrated and complement each other to allow end-users and analysts to… 
Visual Analytics Indicators for Mobility and Transportation
TLDR
The main indicators for Visual Analytics for mobility and transportation that are exemplary are introduced and explained through two case studies.
Similarity of trajectories taking into account geographic context
TLDR
This paper shows how to integrate geographic context into the similarity analysis of movement data and develops simple but efficient context-aware similarity measures for movement trajectories, which combine a spatial and a contextual distance.
Extracting Semantics of Individual Places from Movement Data by Analyzing Temporal Patterns of Visits
TLDR
An intelligent system that learns how to classify personal places and trips while a human analyst visually analyzes and semantically annotates selected subsets of movement data is planned.
Bus Lines Explorer: Interactive Exploration of Public Transportation Data
TLDR
An improved view of the standard map view is presented, specifically designed to simplify and make the visual analysis of complex movement data easier to perform, especially when integrated in a coordinated multiple views tool and articulated together with other techniques.
Visual analysis of bi-directional movement behavior
TLDR
A comprehensive visual analytics system with three major visualization modules, including Global View, OD-pair Flow View and Isotime Storyline View, to depict bi-directional movement behaviors in a novel way, which enables a three-level exploration to help users gain insights into both macro and micro patterns.
Map-based interaction with trajectory data
TLDR
This dissertation addresses issues through three main sets of contributions, focusing on inexperienced users, in terms of data visualization and analysis: the characterization of the dis/advantages of existing map-based techniques, depending on the types of visual analysis tasks and the focus of the analysis.
Moving Objects Analytics: Survey on Future Location & Trajectory Prediction Methods
TLDR
This paper focuses on predictive analytics for moving objects and surveys the state-of-the-art in the context of future location and trajectory prediction and proposes a novel taxonomy of predictive algorithms over moving objects.
TranSeVis: A Visual Analytics System for Transportation Data Sensing and Exploration
TLDR
An interactive visual analytic system, TranSeVis, which provides detailed visual analysis of mobility factors along routes or congestions spots and offers transportation researchers an easy-to-use, efficient, and scalable platform to visualize and explore transportation data.
Cartographic visualization of human trajectory data: overview and analysis
TLDR
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.
Visual analytics of sensor movement data for cheetah behaviour analysis
TLDR
This work presents a concept and implementation for the visual analysis of cheetah movement data in a web-based fashion that allows usage both in the field and in office environments.

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.
Scalable Analysis of Movement Data for Extracting and Exploring Significant Places
TLDR
A visual analytics procedure consisting of four major steps that are not limited by the size of the computer's RAM and can be applied to very large data sets, which is demonstrated by example of two real-world problems requiring analysis at different spatial scales.
Visual analytics of movement: An overview of methods, tools and procedures
TLDR
An illustrated structured survey of the state of the art in visual analytics concerning the analysis of movement data is presented and it is demonstrated, using examples, how different visual analytics techniques can support the understanding of various aspects of movement.
Visual Analytics for Understanding Spatial Situations from Episodic Movement Data
TLDR
This work presents an approach utilising Visual Analytics methods to explore and understand the temporal variation of spatial situations derived from episodic movement data by means of spatio-temporal aggregation.
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.
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.
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.
Towards a taxonomy of movement patterns
TLDR
This paper proposes a comprehensive classification and review of movement patterns and argues that this is indispensable as a basis for the development of pattern recognition and information visualization algorithms that are required to be efficient, effective, and as generic as possible.
Proximity-based visualization of movement trace data
TLDR
This work presents proximity-based visualization as a novel approach to the visualization of movement traces in an abstract space rather than the given spatial layout, and demonstrates the effectiveness of this approach, and its applicability to visual analytics problems such as hazard prevention, migration patterns, and behavioral studies.
