Abstract

Due to technological developments and societal needs cartography, scientific visualization, image analysis and remote sensing, information visualization, exploratory data analysis, visual analytics, and GIScience have undergone fundamental changes in recent years. Interactivity and dynamics allow not only maps and diagrams to present known facts but also to analyze and explore unknown data. The environment in which the maps and diagrams are used has also changed and often includes coordinated multiple views display via the Internet. Such environments allow for simultaneous alternative views of the data and stimulate visual thinking, resulting in geovisualization.
