Smith, B. (May 2005)
Multiple Small Maps as an Information Seeking Tool
HCIL-2005-17, CS-TR-4748, UMIACS-TR-2005-51

We use maps to convey geographical information, and graphs to convey time series information, but there is no common graphical format to convey geo-referenced time series information. Multiple small maps may be useful as a way of exploring this type of information. Issues raised by this type of interface, such as granularity and recognizability, and research plans for addressing them, are discussed.
