Visualizing Spatio-Temporal Data

Data icon, disabled. Four grey bars arranged like a vertical bar chart.

The research question is “How can Spatio-temporal data be visualized on a graphical plot within the Lampy project of the DataSystems’ Lab?” By using high-level Python libraries and data set software such as Matplotlib, time-series can be visualized. Likewise, spatial data can be visualized from the shapely library from GeoPanda, another similar software. However, if a particular dataset contains both spatial and temporal information, visualizing it is not supported by these libraries. This is the challenge the research team faces. Additionally, the project should account for users that may be interested in visualizing the results generated from it.
