A SPATIO-TEMPORAL VISUAL ANALYTICS TOOL FOR SIMULATED TRANSPORT ORIENTED-LAND USE URBAN PLANNING DATA
Keywords: Data Visualization, Urban Visual Analytics, Interactive Urban Data Analysis, Spatiotemporal Data Visualization
Abstract. This article presents a proposal framed in urban visual analytics, which aims to facilitate the exploration and analysis of zonal spatial indicators over time for a case of a large city-region. The context in which this exploration is carried out is the evaluation of the impact of interventions in land use and transportation, based on data produced by an integrated simulation system. The large amount of data to evaluate a scenario makes urgent the effort to design new interactive analysis environments. The resulting prototype (VIZ-BUS: Visual Analytics for Bogota Urban Simulator) has, for its design, an analyst-centric approach to the analysis task. Our first web deployment has been very well received by urban planning specialists in order to evaluate scenarios for a sustainable and smart city-region.
