Questions related to Geovisualization
I am looking for some regional science journals that accept short articles and specifically regional graphics (e.g. maps, geovisualisations) with a maximum of 500/1000 maximum words of accompanying text. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you
I'm looking for information about drought geovisualization, how is the drought information communicated in the context of the threat? (publications, webGIS, geoportals, virtual globes).
Maps and other kind of geovisualizations such as globes, interactive 3-d worlds etc. seem to be very popular and fascinate a lot of people. But what is the reason for this (just aesthetics, potential immersion/fantasy firing, exploratory spirit, ...)?
Well, of course there are a lot of threads in the Web that deal with this question. But for me, the answers I found there are not really satisfying (often fuzzy, not pointing-out the core issues). Who knows research works, scientific papers, or useful Web-links addressing this topic?
If we knew what makes geovisualization such interesting, maybe we could export these ideas and concepts to other domains, e.g. to set-up interesting user interfaces for (non-geospatial) applications, or to design innovative experiental spaces, etc.
I'm curious about your thoughts and ideas!
Hello everyone, I am working on creating a Vector Tiling Service that will allow me serve my GIS data all the way from the storage to the map client as vector without loosing any attributes as opposed to raster tiling. Is their any current implementation and/ or some literature on some work that has been done that I could use as m reference? Theoretically it is documented that it is possible and would be more efficient than the current rendering standards such as WMS, WFS, Raster tiling or even the use of GEOJSON and XML which are readable but very large in size sometimes freezing the browser if the file is large enough. Any one with some material on this please share! My motivation is based on this question on stack exchange
For a same digital elevation model (DEM), I applied different classifications. In the following figure, to the left is the outcome of natural breaks (Jenks 1967), while to the right is that of head/tail breaks (Jiang 2013). The right pattern revealed the underlying scaling pattern of far more low locations (or low value pixels) than high locations (or high value pixels). However, we have got used to the left pattern. What do you think?

My colleagues and I work on developing computational and visual approaches to understand spatial, temporal and demographic patterns in family networks. Please send me a message if you are interested in using our methodology or if you have common research interests for potential collaboration. I attached our recent publication and below is my website where you can find more information.
Perception of different visualization (aerial photo vs. sketch map vs. thematic map). Does it have any differences to non expert GIS users to estimate distance or location from these different visualization?
My mentor give a topic related to spatial data cube, and I know little about this. Can anyone give a more specific explain? What technologies does it need? Or recommend some paper for me?
I'm sorry that I haven't mention about the data I use. It comes from the land change and it's all vector data. Thanks to the answer of Robbi and Ruxandra, I've known that it has a relationship with the Spatio-Temporal Data Mining.
