TIMELINE: A tool for the video analysis and visualization of geographic phenomena over time


Kuhn, M; Pfister, S; Vontobel, I; Willi, C; De Sabbata, S; Coltekin, Arzu (2011). TIMELINE: A tool for the video analysis and visualization of geographic phenomena over time. In: 25th International Cartographic Conference, Paris, FR, 3 July 2011 - 8 July 2011, CO-451.

Abstract

The growing number of webcams and their rapidly improving quality provide the researchers in Cartography and in other fields of Geography with a valuable source of information, i.e. webcam recordings can be used to study many kinds of geographic phenomena. Nevertheless, the use of tools such as webcams raise a question about the appropriate time scale needed to identify and study different kinds of geographic phenomena. In this paper we present a web tool called TIMELINE that can be used to collect, archive and visualize various geographic phenomena at different time scales using recorded imagery.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
