Visual and Spatial Analysis - Advances in Data Mining, by Boris Kovalerchuk, James Schwing

By Boris Kovalerchuk, James Schwing

Advanced visible research and challenge fixing has been performed effectively for millennia. The Pythagorean Theorem was once confirmed utilizing visible capability greater than 2000 years in the past. within the nineteenth century, John Snow stopped a cholera epidemic in London through featuring particular water pump be close down. He stumbled on that pump through visually correlating facts on a urban map. The objective of this e-book is to offer the present traits in visible and spatial research for facts mining, reasoning, challenge fixing and decision-making. this can be the 1st ebook to target visible selection making and challenge fixing regularly with particular functions within the geospatial area ? combining concept with real-world perform. The booklet is exclusive in its integration of recent symbolic and visible techniques to selection making and challenge fixing. As such, it ties jointly a lot of the monograph and textbook literature in those rising components.

This e-book comprises 21 chapters which were grouped into 5 components: (1) visible challenge fixing and choice making, (2) visible and heterogeneous reasoning, (3) visible correlation, (4) visible and spatial facts mining, and (5) visible and spatial challenge fixing in geospatial domain names. every one bankruptcy ends with a precis and exercises.

The e-book is meant for pros and graduate scholars in computing device technological know-how, utilized arithmetic, imaging technological know-how and Geospatial info structures (GIS). as well as being a state of the art examine compilation, this publication can be utilized a textual content for complicated classes at the matters reminiscent of modeling, special effects, visualization, photograph processing, facts mining, GIS, and set of rules analysis.

Example text

This alternative can guide an investigation (including exploratory visualizations) instead of relying on insight of such extraordinary people as Dr. Snow. We illustrate the concept of model-based approach in Figure 9. This conceptual model has two components. The first component involves an analyst, who builds a DMM model and discovers some relationships. The second component involves a decision maker who works with relationships discovered by the analyst. This work is based on discovered and visualized relations and a DMM for actual decision.

Casner also refers to similar previous judgments of [Jarvenpaa & Dickson, 19881 and concludes that effective graphic design should begin with a task analysis and be focused on finding the parts that might be performed more efficiently using a graphic. To succeed, the task-driven approach needs a mechanism for matching the task (that is not originally in a graphic form) with a graphic. If thc semantics of a task are expressed in propositional formalism then we need a graphic represented as sentences in a formal graphical language that has the same mutched, precise syntax and semantics as the propositional formalism.

At first glance, it means that both tasks need the same visualization support. However, in the cxarnplc above, even when the entities involved in the comparison are the same (houses and neighborhoods), the outputs are different. I . Decision process and its visual aspects 25 In browsing, it is the features of houses and neighborhoods that are important, while in decision making it is a house as a whole. Thus, the process of browsing needs the support of making all the features of two or more houses visible simultaneously.
