With widespread availability of low cost GPS devices, it is becoming possible to record data about the movement of people and objects at a large scale. While these data hide important knowledge for the optimization of location and mobility oriented infrastructures and services, by themselves they lack the necessary semantic embedding which would make fully automatic algorithmic analysis possible. At the same time, making the semantic link is easy for humans who however cannot deal well with… 
Visual Analytics of Movement
TLDR
The authors demonstrate that visual analytics of movement data can yield exciting insights into the behavior of moving persons and objects, but can also lead to an understanding of the events that transpire when things move.
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
A Visual Analytics Approach to Exploration of Large Amounts of Movement Data
TLDR
Analysis of movement data requires the involvement of a human expert, who can interpret the data on the basis of his/her knowledge, which includes the general knowledge of the (geographic) space, time, and movement as well as territory- and domain-specific knowledge.
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.
VAIT: A Visual Analytics System for Metropolitan Transportation
TLDR
Based on the extensive empirical experiment results, VAIT beats state-of-the-art methods and systems in terms of scalability, efficiency, and effectiveness and offers an easy-to-use, efficient, and scalable platform to shed more light on intelligent transportation research.
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.
A visual analytics system for metropolitan transportation
TLDR
This work visualize traffic data together with digital maps and support analytical queries through this interactive visual interface and demonstrates VAST on real-world taxi GPS and meter data sets from 15, 000 taxis running two months in a Chinese city of over 10 million population.
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.
Spatio-temporal aggregation for visual analysis of movements
TLDR
The ways of using aggregation for visual analysis of movement data is investigated and aggregation methods suitable for movement data are defined and visualization and interaction techniques to represent results of aggregations and enable comprehensive exploration of the data are found.
A geovisual analytics approach for mouse movement analysis
TLDR
The design and features of VizAnalysisTools, a suite of tools to visualise and interpret users' implicit interactions with map content, are described, which can be used to strengthen the algorithms used for geopersonalisation.

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.
Seeking structure in records of spatio-temporal behaviour: visualization issues, efforts and applications
Discovering relative motion patterns in groups of moving point objects
TLDR
A generic geographic knowledge discovery approach for exploring the motion of moving point objects, the prime modelling construct to represent GPS tracked animals, people, or vehicles, based on the concept of geospatial lifelines is presented.
Visualizing, Querying and Summarizing Individual Spatio-Temporal Behaviour
Geo time information visualization
TLDR
A novel visualization technique for displaying and tracking events, objects and activities within a combined temporal and geospatial display has been developed and it is believed the concept is applicable to a variety of government and business analysis tasks.
GeoTime Information Visualization

Similarity Search in Trajectory Databases
TLDR
This paper introduces a framework consisting of a set of distance operators based on primitive as well as derived parameters of trajectories (speed and direction) to support trajectory clustering and classification mining tasks, which definitely imply a way to quantify the distance between two trajectories.
Spatio-temporal GIS Design for Exploring Interactions of Human Activities
TLDR
A spatio-temporal GIS design which can accommodate the extended space–time path concept and extend Hagerstrand's time–geographic framework for the representation and analysis of human interactions in both physical and virtual spaces is proposed.
Dynamics-aware similarity of moving objects trajectories
TLDR
This work addresses the problem of obtaining the degree of similarity between trajectories of moving objects with a distance function which balances the lack of temporal-awareness of the Hausdorff distance with the generality (and complexity of calculation) of the Fréchet distance.
