Turns out “Time Traveling: Interfaces for Geotemporal Visualization” doesn’t have anything to do with time travel. Still though, very interesting. Tools that handle time well do not do well with spatial context (space is an abstraction). And vise versa. How do you marry these two important elements — visualizing an object or event in it’s proper time and, at the same time, show it spatially? The panel argues that those tools haven’t been developed yet. I never thought about this but it’s true.
