AMCS Seminar - CANCELED
The wide use of location-aware devices and technologies allow capturing massive amounts of spatial flow data including movements of humans, vehicles, sensors, animals, and communication (e.g., information, ideas, and phone calls). Such data offer unprecedented opportunities to study and understand the dynamics of human society, environment, urban system and interactions among them. However, it remains a challenging problem to analyze, visualize and understand the big data of spatial interactions due to the complexity of patterns, and complex space-time dynamics of movements and geo-social connections. This talk will first provide a discussion of the challenges in the analysis and visualization of spatial interaction data, and introduce a series of new computational and visual methods to discover hidden structures from big spatial interaction data.
