Modelling temporal information in a two-dimensional space: a visualization perspective

Yi Qiang UGent (2012)
abstract
Time is a pervasive concept involved in all aspects of human activities. It appears to be a tradition that people consider and represent time linearly. Nevertheless, this work shows that extending the representation of time from one-dimension to two-dimension (2D) leads to a better visualization for time intervals and many interval-based concepts. Although this representation at the first glance differs from the conventional linear concept of time, beyond this, it has many advantages in terms of visual perception and intuition. This thesis studies the use of the 2D time representation in solving several problems in temporal reasoning and analysis.
