Abstract
Let P be a simple polygon with n vertices, and let A be a set of m points or line segments inside P. We develop data structures that can efficiently count the objects from A that are visible to a query point or a query segment. Our main aim is to obtain fast, O(polylog nm), query times, while using as little space as possible. In case the query is a single point, a simple visibility-polygon-based solution achieves O(log nm) query time using O(nm²) space. In case A also contains only points, we present a smaller, O(n + m^{2+ε} log n)-space, data structure based on a hierarchical decomposition of the polygon. Building on these results, we tackle the case where the query is a line segment and A contains only points. The main complication here is that the segment may intersect multiple regions of the polygon decomposition, and that a point may see multiple such pieces. Despite these issues, we show how to achieve O(log n log nm) query time using only O(nm^{2+ε} + n²) space. Finally, we show that we can even handle the case where the objects in A are segments with the same bounds.

Coordinated Schematization for Visualizing Mobility Patterns on Networks

Authors: Bram Custers, Wouter Meulemans, Bettina Speckmann, and Kevin Verbeek

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 208, 11th International Conference on Geographic Information Science (GIScience 2021) - Part II


Abstract
GPS trajectories of vehicles moving on a road network are a valuable source of traffic information. However, the sheer volume of available data makes it challenging to identify and visualize salient patterns. Meaningful visual summaries of trajectory collections require that both the trajectories and the underlying network are aggregated and simplified in a coherent manner. In this paper we propose a coordinated fully-automated pipeline for computing a schematic overview of mobility patterns from a collection of trajectories on a street network. Our pipeline utilizes well-known building blocks from GIS, automated cartography, and trajectory analysis: map matching, road selection, schematization, movement patterns, and metro-map style rendering. We showcase the results of our pipeline on two real-world trajectory collections around The Hague and Beijing.
