GeoVisualization of Dynamics, Movement and Change

Workshop at the AGILE 2008 Conference (May 5, 2008, Girona, Spain)
Special Issue of the Information Visualization journal (provisional issue Vol.7 No.3)

The theme for the workshop and this special issue of Information Visualization is the use of GeoVisualization and GeoVisual Analytics approaches for exploring and analysing large data sets with spatial and temporal components. Original papers are solicited in this area. In particular, we encourage innovative papers detailing the visualization methods supported by and integrated with data mining and other computational processing.

The workshop will provide participants with the possibility to present ongoing and developing work without committing to a full journal paper.
The journal special issue will provide participants with the opportunity of reporting their work in a refereed journal.

Example topics include, but are not limited to, the visualization and interactive analysis of large data sets representing:

  • individual and group movement behaviours - either in physical or virtual spaces

  • dynamics of geo-localised sensor data

  • spatio-temporal events

  • remotely sensed data, multi-scale and multi-temporal

  • knowledge construction and reasoning about spatial and temporal phenomena and processes

  • application of innovative visualization methods to real-life problems

Organizers and Guest Editors:
