GeoViz: Linking Geovisualization with Spatial Analysis and Modeling, 10-11 March 2011, Hamburg, Germany

With the use of computer technologies, such as animation and interactivity, this assumption came to be questioned and a new semiology was created in order to better visualize the spatio-temporal changes.”
