The Presence of Absence in Geovisual Analytics of Big Data

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

New spatial data sources are emerging that have attributes of big data. These sources challenge our ability to handle high degrees of velocity, volume, and variety, and also frequently include a wide range of attributes that stretch our ability to characterize their veracity. While it remains quite challenging to visually represent, interact with, and reason about these data, our focus in this work is to suggest what analysts may be able to learn from the gaps in what we measure or the absences suggested by certain attributes. Put simply, we need to know more about how to show the missingness and absence in spatial data and to understand how people reason with that type of information in geovisual analytics environments.
