Geostatistical Approaches for Geovisual Data Exploration, Analysis and 3D-Visualisation in Civil Security

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

“This contribution presents selected approaches, methods and tools to facilitate geovisual analytical data exploration for civil security purposes. To analyse large emergency service data of a major German city’s fire department, different data mining techniques are applied. This allows identifying statistical significant clusters in space and time. To facilitate convenient methods for exploring such complex datasets, a GIS-based software is developed. For visualisation and interactive exploration these results are integrated into a three-dimensional geovirtual environment.”
