Dynamic visualization of geographic networks using surface deformations /
Alper, Emine Başak (2006) Dynamic visualization of geographic networks using surface deformations /. [Thesis]
Visualization techniques for geographic data show vast variations which are well-developed over centuries. While most of the known techniques are sound for low dimensional data sets, few techniques exist for visualization of high dimensional data within the geographic framework. This thesis investigates visualization of temporal. high dimensional network data within the geographic context. The resulting visualization system employs network visualization techniques in conjunction with cartographic visualization methods for providing a qualitative feel for the data, while conventional methods are employed for detailed examination. In turn, the visualization facilitates comprehension of non-spatial variables with respect to the geographic context.
