      GeoVA(T): GeoSpatial Visual Analytics: Focus on Time


  Workshop at AGILE http://agile2010.dsi.uminho.pt/ , 11 May 2010,
                      special issue of
                   IJGIS - Int J GIScience
            tentative publication date: September 2010

The workshop is a follow-up of the successful workshops on

 - Visualization, Analytics and Spatial Decision Support at the
   GIScience’2006 conference,
 - Geovisualization of Dynamics, Movement and Change at AGILE'2008,
 - GeoSpatial Visual Analytics at GIScience'2008.

Selected papers from the previous workshops, including research agenda
papers, were published as special issues of

 - IJGIS, 2007, v.21(8), 2007
 - Information Visualization, 2008, v.7 (3/4)
 - CaGIS, 2009, v.36 (3)

The theme for the workshop and this special issue of International
Journal of Geographical Information Science is the use of GeoVisual
Analytics approaches for exploring and analysing large data sets with
both spatial and temporal components. Original papers are solicited in
this area. In particular, we encourage innovative papers detailing
tight integration of visualization, data mining, database processing,
optimization and other computational processing methods.

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
 - large high-dimensional data sets in space and time
 - streams of spatio-temporal data

as well as

 - models and semantics of time in geospatial visual analytics
 - knowledge construction and reasoning about spatial and temporal
   phenomena and processes
 - application of innovative visual analytics methods to real-life problems

Organizers and Guest Editors:

Gennady and Natalia Andrienko, Jason Dykes, Menno-Jan Kraak, and
Heidrun Schumann
