Spatio-temporal Visualization of Battlefield Entities and Events
In this work, we address visualization of spatio-temporal data for military application. Four different visualization prototypes have been developed to track the movement of military entities across a land surface over time; three more have been developed to track the occurrences of numerous war events. We have implemented the prototypes in a software system with a novel clock face GUI. Usability tests have been carried out and confirmed the effectiveness of the solution.
