Intertwining views of sightseeing and eating patterns of tourists on the West Coast of New Zealand over 3 days. In spatial ringmap, each ring represents a sub-regional zone ordered from North to South working outwards. Each sector represents one hour starting from zero o’clock of the first day. The spatial ringmap and the inset map display the temporal and the overall volume of sightseeing (colour) and eating (extrusion) activities in the 20 sub-regional zones respectively.Intertwining views of sightseeing and eating patterns of tourists on the West Coast of New Zealand over 3 days.

Multi-view GIS

Multi-view GIS provides different perspectives of space and time for a given geographic area. There are many ways in which multiple views can be created using GIS software such as ringmaps and augmented reality.

Real-time Collaborative GIS

Real-time collaborative GIS (RCGIS) enables users, from domain experts to common citizens, to collaborate on given issues and share data easily through a distributed framework.

Why the Canadian Arctic Needs to be Mapped

The Canadian Hydrographic Service is in charge of mapping the Canadian Arctic, but they’ve only gotten about 10% of the way through Canada’s Arctic holdings.
