Distorted Cartogram Visualization for Travelers

Abstract : Most maps are generated based on measures of distance. However, the time required to reach a points of interest can be more important than the distance for a tourist because it directly indicates availability. We propose a novel geographical visualization technique that represents cartography in terms of the time required to travel between the points of interest rather than the distance. Congestion makes areas of the map expand, whereas ideal traffic conditions make the map shrink in comparison to the actual distance scale of a traditional map. The proposed map visualization application enables a more intuitive scheduling for travelers.
