A System to Visualize Location Information and Relationship Integratedly for Resident-centered Community Design

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10904)


This research aims to realize the resident-centered community design by utilizing of information and communication technology (ICT), and create an opportunity to regain relationship within the community by visualizing media spot defined as the place where communication is active in an area. In order to visualize and analyze the location information and the relationship integratedly, we developed a system using the Web interface. As a result of visualization using the system, it became easy to guess the type of meeting and attendees, which can help analysis. On the other hand, it turned out that there is room for improvement in drawing speed and analysis efficiency.
