A novel map-based visualization method based on liquid modelling Biuk-Aghai R.P.
Ao W.H.
ACM International Conference Proceeding Series English 2013 Many applications produce large amounts of data, and information visualization has been successfully applied to help make sense of this data. Recently geographic maps have been used as a metaphor for visualization, given that most people are familiar with reading maps, and several visualization methods based on this metaphor have been developed. In this paper we present a new visualization method that aims to improve on existing map-like visualizations. It is based on the metaphor of liquids poured onto a surface that expand outwards until they touch each other, forming larger areas. We present the design of our visualization method and an evaluation we have carried out to compare it with an existing visualization. Our new visualization has better usability, leading to higher accuracy and greater speed of task performance. 0 0
OpenSeaMap - The free nautical chart Barlocher M. Hydro International English 2013 OpenSeaMap involves experienced mariners, programmers and thousands of data collectors, all of whom are working to produce a nautical chart with comprehensive, relevant and up-to-date data for water sports which is open to everyone and free of charge. OpenSeaMap works like Wikipedia, the upto-date, competent and most comprehensive encyclopedia in the world. Thousands of skippers, divers, kayakers, and other water-sports enthusiasts compile information they consider important and useful for a nautical chart and save them in a spatial database. OpenSeaMap is the fastest chart in the world. Items such as buoys that have been moved, a new harbor or the harbor master's new telephone number can be found online within just a few minutes, instead of one year later in the next edition of a common harbor pilot book. OpenSeaMap is versatile. It contains information on oceans, rivers and topography. 0 0

SIGIR'12 - Proceedings of the International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval English 2012 Exploratory search, in which a user investigates complex concepts, is cumbersome with today's search engines. We present a new exploratory search approach that generates interactive visualizations of query concepts using thematic cartography (e.g. choropleth maps, heat maps). We show how the approach can be applied broadly across both geographic and non-geographic contexts through explicit spatialization, a novel method that leverages any figure or diagram - from a periodic table, to a parliamentary seating chart, to a world map - as a spatial search environment. We enable this capability by introducing explanatory semantic relatedness measures. These measures extend frequently-used semantic relatedness measures to not only estimate the degree of relatedness between two concepts, but also generate human-readable explanations for their estimates by mining Wikipedia's text, hyperlinks, and category structure. We implement our approach in a system called Atlasify, evaluate its key components, and present several use cases. 0 0

Wikipedia world map: Method and application of map-like wiki visualization Pang C.-L.
Biuk-Aghai R.P.
WikiSym 2011 Conference Proceedings - 7th Annual International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration English 2011 Wiki are popular platforms for collaborative editing. In volunteer-driven wikis such as Wikipedia, which attracts millions of authors editing articles on a diverse range of topics, contributors' editing activity results in certain semantic coverage of topic areas. Obtaining an understanding of a given wiki's semantic coverage is not easy. To solve this problem, we have devised a method for visualizing a wiki in a way similar to a geographic map. We have applied our method to Wikipedia, and generated visualizations for several Wikipedia language editions. This paper presents our wiki visualization method and its application. 0 0

2010 18th International Conference on Geoinformatics, Geoinformatics 2010 English 2010 This paper proposes a tourism GIS based on web2.0. Making full use of the network volunteered data provides users with rich and interactive information such as the picture, description, video, link and the useful spatial tools. By using technical concept of Wiki, it allows users not only to add or edit the geographic information and makes sure the point and line updated in real-time, but also to make thematic map. The system integrates some key technologies of Web2.0 and pushes forward the applying of public participate tourism GIS. 0 0

Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Internet Technologies and Applications, ITA 07 English 2007 Gathering field data from crisis areas requires overcoming a major technical hurdle: infrastructures and terminals for Internet access are non-existent or unreliable. Teams of professionals acting on the field lack a cost-effective, convenient way to provide their data to central management headquarters and the worldwide public in a timely manner. Cell-phone software can be leveraged to bridge this. Using cellphone applications, people living or working in low-tech areas can provide their knowledge worldwide, taking full advantage of georeferenced functionalities. In this paper we present the prototype of a platform based on a wiki+map server backbone for direct information entry, query, and editing, by people on the field using cell-phones, with strong version management. This georeferenced information can then be visualized centrally for tackling development/crisis issues, such as drought problems, outbreaks of diseases, etc. - giving NGOs and governments a better framework upon which to act. 0 0

Proceedings of the 2007 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo, ICME 2007 English 2007 Technology has always been moving. Throughout the decades, improvements in various technological areas have led to a greater sense of convenience to ordinary people, whether it is cutting down time in accessing normal-to-day activities or getting privileged services. One of the technological areas that had been moving very rapidly is that of mobile computing. The common mobile device now has the mobility, provides entertainment via multimedia, connects to the Internet and is powered by intelligent and powerful chips. This paper will touch on an idea that is currently in the works, an integration of a recent technology that has netizens talking all over the world; Google Maps, that provide street and satellite images via the internet to the PC and Wikipedia's user content support idea, the biggest free-content encyclopedia on the Internet. We will hit on how it is able to integrate such a technology with the idea of free form editing into one application in a small mobile device. The new features provided by this application will work toward supporting the development of multimedia application and computing. 0 0
Eyes of a Wiki: Automated navigation map Han H.-S.

Lecture Notes in Computer Science English 2005 There are many potential uses of a Wiki within a community-based digital library. Users share individual ideas to build up community knowledge by efficient and effective collaborative authoring and communications that a Wiki provides. In our study, we investigated how the community knowledge is organized into a knowledge structure that users can access and modify efficiently. Since a Wiki provides users with freedom of editing any pages, a Wiki site increases and changes dynamically, We also developed a tool that helps users to navigate easily in the dynamically changing link structure. In our experiment, it is shown that the navigation tool fosters Wiki users to figure out the complex site structure more easily and thus to build up more well-structured community knowledge base. We also show that a Wiki with the navigation tool improves collaborative learning in a web-based e-learning environment. 0 0
