Geovisualization and Geocomputation of Human Activities in Space-Time: Applications in Geographic Research

A major difficulty in the analysis of disaggregate human mobility behavior arises from the fact that individual movement in space-time is a complex trajectory with many interacting dimensions. In this presentation I draw from my recent studies to suggest that GIS-based 3D geovisualization and geocomputational methods offer considerable promise for the analysis of human activities in space-time. Specifically I seek to illustrate that 3D geovisualization and geocomputational methods are effective for enhancing our understanding of the interaction between space and time in human activity behavior, for exploring human hybrid activity-travel patterns, and for taking qualitative information and human emotions into account.
