Spatial-temporal GIS


GIS Software

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.

Time and GIS: Ways of Representing Time on a Map

Spatialtemporal visualization are ways to illustrate changes in an area over time on a map. The famous geographer Immanuel Kant maintained that geography was the study of knowledge in a location, while history was the study of knowledge in time. This article explores different cartographic methods of showing changes in time over space on a map.
