||Visualizing the (in)Visible: Mapping Culture and the Forces that Shape the Urban Experience
||Rodriguez, Awilda; Paolo Sanza
||Digital technologies not only have made information accessible but also have exponentially generated new data. The continue growth of urban GIS and pervasive computing is helping us analyze human interactions in unprecedented ways. Yet, when researching urban sites, the students’ task is conventionally limited to the analysis of aggregate spatial data that does not reveal the invisible forces acting upon the site. The limitation of this approach is further evident if students cannot visit the site. This paper explores the role of information visualization to uncover uncommon site forces and to supplement students’ lack of embodiment with far distanced sites.
