Real-time 4D visualization of migratory insect dynamics within an integrated spatiotemporal system


Wu, Y; Price, B; Isenegger, D; Fischlin, A; Allgöwer, B; Nüesch, D (2006). Real-time 4D visualization of migratory insect dynamics within an integrated spatiotemporal system. Ecological Informatics, 1(2):179-187.

Abstract

This paper presents a new approach of spatiotemporally visualizing the simulation output of migratory insect dynamics and resultant vegetation changes in real-time. The visualization is capable of displaying simulated ecological phenomena in an intuitive manner, which allows research results to be easily understood by a wide range of users. In order to design a fast and efficient visualization technique, a simplified mathematical model is applied to intelligibly represent migrating groups of insects. In addition, impostors are used to accelerate rendering processes. The presented visualization method is implemented in an integrated spatiotemporal analysis system, which models, simulates and analyzes ecological phenomena such as insect migration through time at a variety of spatial resolutions.

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.
