Visualisation for linked and complex data

(Submission #307)


All major GIS solutions build on the concept of layers as the organizing principle of data structure. This concept is grounded in traditional map-making, where the map is created from many individual layers in print, or as transparent sheets that are overlaid. In such a layer model, there are no fixed links between the objects in each layer, and each layer follows a very simple structure (“Simple Features”). These well-established cartographic methods are not well suited for showing relations in complex and linked data. Our aim is to design an explorative cartographic approach that enables users to discover relations between objects and thus find a path through complex data structures. In the workshop, we will demonstrate and collaboratively design innovative concepts for cartographic visualization and interaction that allow easy navigation and exploration of complex data structures as represented i.e. by INSPIRE data. Some preliminary studies have been performed in the scope of the InspireGIS project. Further ideas and requirements towards an innovative design approach will be discussed and further developed as design challenges with the participants in the workshop based on the Design Studio methodology.
