Paper Abstract

Dynamic visualization provides a unique bridge between disciplines and offers a way to synthesize information from myriad sources into an integrated context. Geographic Information Systems “GIS” has evolved into a highly sophisticated toolset for "situated knowledge." Location-based services utilizing technologies such as GPS and RFID tagging are supporting the rise of spatially integrated information and are resulting in new visualization tools that provide a spatio-temporal context for multidisciplinary inquiry. This paper explores the following question: “How can geovisualization make the broadest range of data understandable in the most intuitive way?” It also introduces the GeoMatrix engine, a powerful tool for spherical realtime display. It assists in the assimilation of spatio-temporal information in a geographic context by showing patterns on multiple scales.
