Effective Advanced GIS and Time Series Visualization

As part of my curriculum in MS program, I had an opportunity to discuss on Advanced GIS and Time Series Visualization. I wanted to share with sas community.

 

Bye (2016) has given the history of the world through a YouTube video from 200000 BCE. This animation / visualization uses several techniques including different shading, coloring, and a year timer that keeps on moving as the map changes at different points in history.

 

This visualization/animation gives due consideration to global population, discoveries and inventions, advanced civilization, politics and diplomacy, society and culture all in one setting. Per Meirelles (2013), it is a thematic map visualization where the animation contains themes as mentioned above all in one animation which is phenomenal. There is however no reference to scaling, and is a projection of a multidimensional object (earth being a globe or sphere) into two dimensional projections.

 

Due to the time constraints of the audience, Bye (2016) must have shortened the video to ~19 minutes. If the important events in history including 1st and 2nd world wars, when the global population reached a billion people, important inventions and discoveries such as gravity, computers and so forth, with appropriate color schemes, and themes would make it much more memorable.
