 3D Visualization of Multiple Time Series on Maps
Abstract—In the analysis of spatially-referenced timedependent data, gaining an understanding of the spatiotemporal distributions and relationships among the attributes in the data can be quite difficult. We present a visualization technique that addresses some of the challenges involved in visually exploring and analyzing the distributions of geo-spatial time-varying data. We have developed a pictorial representation that is based on the standard space-time cube metaphor and provides in a single display the overview and details of a large number of time-varying quantities. Our approach involves three-dimensional graphical widgets that intuitively represent profiles of the time-varying quantities and can be plotted on a geographic map to expose interesting spatiotemporal distributions of the data.We show how combining our visualization technique with standard data exploration features can assist in the exploration of salient patterns in a data set. The visualization a...
