This module will cover aspects of geovisual analytics, working with applications related to time series of movement data of people, animals, and goods. The objective is to integrate, transform and visually analyze the data to reveal spatio-temporal patterns and trends.
This resulting integrated visual environment with interactive and dynamic map and diagram displays are based on a user-centred design, and when relevant will make use of VR technology.
