Abstract

Monitoring smart cities is a key challenge due the variety of data streams generated from different process (traffic, human dynamics, pollution, energy supply, water supply, etc.). All these streams show us what is happening and as to where and when in the city. The purpose of this paper was to apply different types of glyphs for showing real-time stream evolution of data gathered in the city. The use of glyphs is intended to make the most out of the human capacity for detecting visual patterns.
