              GeoVisual Analytics, Time to Focus on Time
           @ GIScience (18 September 2012, Columbus OH, USA)
       & Special issue of Information Visualization (early 2013)


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, and
- GeoSpatial Visual Analytics at GIScience'2008.
- GeoSpatial Visual Analytics: Focus on Time at AGILE'2010.

Selected papers from the previous workshops, including research agenda papers,
were published as special issues of
- International Journal of Geographical Information Science, 2007, v.21(8)
- Information Visualization, 2008, v.7 (3/4), and
- Cartography and Geographic Information Science, 2009, v.36 (3)
- International Journal of Geographical Information Science, 2010, v.24(10)

Geospatial visual analytics has a tendency to emphasize the spatial
components of geographic information. At this workshop we encourage
approaches that utilize and emphasize the temporal characteristics of
geographic information in rich, novel and useful ways - it's time to
focus on time.

The theme for the workshop and this special issue of the Information
Visualization journal 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.

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 selected participants
with the opportunity of reporting their work in a refereed journal.
Papers will be selected for consideration for the spacial issue
according to the quality, maturity and likely impact of the work in
addition to its fit with the theme.

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
- visualization and analysis of multi-scale and multi-temporal data
- 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
