Spatio-Temporal Visualization

Spatio-Temporal Visualization

Learning more about people mobility is an important task for official decision makers and urban planners. Mobility data sets characterize the variation of the presence of people in different places over time as well as movements (or flows) of people between the places.

Spatio-temporal visualization allows fast and understandable analysis and presentation of the movement data for support of various analytical tasks. The tasks may concentrate on the examination of the movements or finding frequent/unusual movement patterns. We focus on analysis of movements of people/objects individually or in a group, movements of whole groups and changes between groups.

  • Individual Movements: Exploration of typical patterns in individual movements
  • Individual Movements: Analysis of individual movements within a group
  • Group Movements: Analysis of Group movements – analysis of a single group and comparison of several groups
  • Group Movements: Analysis of Group Changes – Examination of movements between groups

Applications:

  • transportation,
  • emergency management,
  • biology (e.g., bird movement, )
  • medicine (patient movements)
  • telecommunication: mobile networks and movements
  • meteorology
