     GeoVA(T): GeoSpatial Visual Analytics: Focus on Time
 Workshop at AGILE http://agile2010.dsi.uminho.pt/ , 11 May 2010,
                     special issue of
                  IJGIS - Int J GIScience
           tentative publication date: September 2010

The workshop is a follow-up of the successful workshops on

- Visualization, Analytics and Spatial Decision Support at the
  GIScience'2006 conference,
- Geovisualization of Dynamics, Movement and Change at AGILE'2008,
- GeoSpatial Visual Analytics at GIScience'2008.

Selected papers from the previous workshops, including research agenda papers, were published as special issues of

- IJGIS, 2007, v.21(8), 2007
- Information Visualization, 2008, v.7 (3/4)
- CaGIS, 2009, v.36 (3)

The theme for the workshop and this special issue of International Journal of Geographical Information Science is the use of GeoVisual Analytics approaches for exploring and analysing large data sets with both spatial and temporal components. Original papers are solicited in this area. In particular, we encourage innovative papers detailing tight integration of visualization, data mining, database processing, optimization and other computational processing methods.

The workshop will provide participants with the possibility to present ongoing and developing work without committing to a full journal paper. The journal special issue will provide participants with the opportunity of reporting their work in a refereed journal.

Example topics include, but are not limited to, the visualization and interactive analysis of large data sets representing:

- individual and group movement behaviours, either in physical or
  virtual spaces
- dynamics of geo-localised sensor data
- spatio-temporal events
- remotely sensed data, multi-scale and multi-temporal
- large high-dimensional data sets in space and time
- streams of spatio-temporal data

as well as

- models and semantics of time in geospatial visual analytics
- knowledge construction and reasoning about spatial and temporal
  phenomena and processes
- application of innovative visual analytics methods to real-life problems
