We have over 25 years of experience using standard and custom-developed GIS and
image processing software to render, analyze, and animate 3-dimensional surfaces
and spaces. These techniques let you see, interact with, and understand your data
on an intuitive basis, using your innate expertise developed through a lifetime of
navigating and comprehending the real 3-dimensional world of surfaces, shadows,
and spatial relationships. Not to mention that they just look cool...
Animation: Data Animation
Non-geographic data can be animated to facilitate visualization and
understanding of multi-dimensional data structure. This animation
looks at the concentration of NO2 due to car emissions (colored data
cloud) as a function of 3 variables: number of cars per hour, air
temperature 2 meters above the ground, and wind speed. The animation
provides a more comprehensive look at the multivariate structure than
can be easily gleaned from scatterplots and regression coefficients.
