Fully funded EPSRC DTP PhD scholarship Visualisation of temporal networks through connections with the space-time cube. Dynamic data sets where all elements of the data have their own individual timestamp have become more widespread. Algorithms for drawing temporal networks within the space-time cube (2D + t) have been devised to permit dynamic graphs to be visualised in an event-based way. However, three-dimensional representations of non-spatial information are tough to navigate. Therefore, interactive systems are essential to fully understand the graph structure and how it changes over time.
The student will investigate perceptually real ways of dividing and visualising the space-time cube. The project will start by visualising the contents of this space-time cube with an entrenched network drawn with an event-based dynamic graph drawing algorithm. The visualisation methods, in this case, will emphasize visualising the already present structure within the drawing which takes into account both spatial position and time concurrently. Then, we will explore methods that are able to draw the dynamic graph on the claim in the space-time cube steered by the user.
