GIS Day @ UCSB Geography

GIS day is the third Wednesday of November in each year, during the Geography Awareness Week. As a global event, GIS day provides a great opportunity for GIS users and researchers to exchange ideas and present works to a wide audience. To celebrate this special day for spatial studies, we will hold a lightning talk on Nov. 18th (Tuesday) at the UCSB Center for Spatial Studies. We sincerely invite you to join us and present your work.

A cartographic approach to visualize research topics in the 2013 WWW conference

Recently, we have designed a Web-based application to visualize the spatiotemporal evolution of Web related research topics (See the previous blog here). In this application, a word-cloud-based timeline has been employed to visualize the evolution of research topics on the Web. While word clouds have been a popular way to display the prominent terms, they are unable to reveal the relations among the research topics.
