Hyatt Lodge at McDonald's Campus, Oak Brook, Illinois, USA October 14 to October 16, 2010
Special Session in VLC 2010 International Workshop
The 16th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS'10)
Organized by Knowledge Systems Institute, U.S.A.
Geo Visualization(GV) represents an emerging multidisciplinary research field whose aim is to support users in their specific analytical tasks, by providing them with techniques to synthesize information, discover hidden information, and derive insight from large amounts of data.
GV refines techniques conceived in the Information Visualization context in order to visualize multidimensional and geographic data by taking care of cognitive, qualitative and scalability aspects. With respect to the field of visualization, VA integrates methodology from information analytics, human factors and data analysis. In particular, it adopts visual and interactive methods from the visualisation research, and merges them with new possibilities provided by computational techniques such as data mining, statistics, and optimisation.
The aim of this special session is to provide a forum specifically conceived to the dissemination and exchange of research results on VA. Due to its multidisciplinary nature different communities may be involved aiming at proposing a common working platform on which to base the theoretical principles of experimental activities thus achieving a comparable and measurable improvement.
